Quotes

"You have to be home for 21 days; all those that worked closely with this man have to be quarantined" Madam Penn advised
"Liberian Constitution article 21(a), so your contention that Mr. Teahjay and Mr. Smith should comply with a statute, which is not applicable to the 2014 senatorial election is untenable. Next, the un-timeliness of your complaint is an issue that you did not consider."
...On Monday, the WHO declared that cases are "increasing exponentially" in the country, where "the demands of the Ebola outbreak have completely outstripped the government's and partners' capacity to respond."
"I’m telling them if they are serious enough that the government is not working in the interest of the people or that government has failed in the fight against Ebola,…. resign or simply shut up,” the Montserrado County Representative warned."
