Quotes

"There’s breakdown of healthcare system in the country, and the government's inability under President Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf to fix it. Good doctors, nurses, and other healthcare providers aren't given the support they need to save lives”, Nyenpan laments."
"For me, if nothing is done to address the situation in my district which is the largest slum community in Montserrado County, I will take those bodies and have them laid before the Ministry of Foreign Affairs because we cannot have a hotline that nobody pays attention to" Rep. Solo told his colleagues
...there is no cure for the disease but if a person arrives at a center at the early stage, it is best for them as well as the medical practitioners. "Those whose counties the virus has yet not reached please do not come to Montserrado or any other county. If you do not have business, do not come here if you do not want your community invested. If that means turning people away from your towns, do so" he said
"This means our priorities will have to be sacrificed in the process in order to make room for this emergency which presents a clear present danger to the security and wellbeing of Liberia" the President added
