Liberia Prez seeks help to fight Ebola
Monrovia, Oct 20:  Liberian President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf on Sunday called on the international communities to join the country to fight the Ebola virus disease.

"This is a fight in which the whole world has a stake, this disease respects no borders and the damage it is causing in West Africa, whether in public health, the economy or within communities, is already reverberating throughout the region and across the world," Xinhua quoted the Liberian leader as saying in an open letter issued in Monrovia, the nation's capital city.

She said that initially the international reaction to this crisis was inconsistent and lacking in clear direction or urgency but now the world has woken up.

"The community of nations has realised they cannot simply pull up the drawbridge and wish this situation away," she said.
