Struggling to contain the Ebola virus in Liberia
A major concern for health workers in Liberia’s capital Monrovia is that a shortage of ambulances is causing Ebola sufferers to die at home, potentially risking their communities with further contamination. As at least 1,830 people are believed to already have died from the disease across the country. The crew of private ambulances face a daily struggle collecting Ebola sufferers and taking them to hospital for treatment. They have to deal with equipment shortages and patients who are unwilling to go to hospital.
