A few months ago Liberia had made promising claims that they had been able to lower the amount of Ebola cases in their country. Unfortunately they have now reported that there are dozens of new cases that are popping up along its border with Sierra Leone. This announcement is a true setback for the country of Liberia because as a country they were working vigorously to cut down on their cases of Ebola. Over the last three years over 3400 people have died in Liberia alone because of Ebola. The assistant health minister of Liberia claims that the reason that Ebola has become an issue once again in his country is because many people have been coming into the country through its border and also because of traditional practices that are not sanitary.
In the year to come there is true hope that the world may be able to find more treatments for Ebola, and that the disease can be completely eradicated in West Africa and around the world.
