Liberia shuts down borders to keep Ebola from spreading

Liberia closes borders to keep Ebola from spreading

Liberia closed most of its border crossings on Sunday as part of a campaign to impede the spread of the deadly Ebola virus. Ebola has killed at least 660 people — including two Americans — in West Africa. Only Liberia's main entry points will remain open, and people there will be subject to inspections and testing. Ebola can kill 90 percent of those it strikes, but the current outbreak has killed about 60 percent. Read more about Liberia's response at Reuters.
