How to help those who lost loved ones to the Ebola outbreak

By Michael WicksThe Ebola virus has killed at least 3,895 people and infected about 4,000 more, the United Nations has said.

In the past month alone, more than 2,000 new cases of the virus have been recorded in the country.

The number of people dying in Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea is rising.

The World Health Organisation says the number of new cases in those three countries has now reached 3,000.

The world’s top health official, Margaret Chan, has called on Liberia and Sierra Leone to immediately suspend their current efforts to eradicate the disease.

She has called for the two countries to suspend “all the current measures to control the spread of Ebola and any additional measures that may be necessary to achieve that goal”.

Liberia and Sierra Guinea have both been battling the virus for months.

They have been battling to contain the spread and have declared a “state of emergency” to prevent people from leaving the country without quarantine orders.

The WHO has warned the Ebola virus can spread easily and people who have recently returned from West Africa should not attempt to return home.
