With Liberia being Ebola-free since the beginning of May, the government is discussing plans for erecting a national monument to remember the horrific time during which more than 4,000 Liberians died. One possible site is a cemetery outside Monrovia. It was built to get the crisis under control and symbolically stands for the magnitude of the human tragedy of the epidemic. Benno Muchler reports from Liberia.
Beatrice Yardolo was to make history as Liberiaâs last Ebola patient. Liberians recently started counting down 42 days, the period that has to go by without a single new infection until the World Health Organization can declare a country Ebola-free. That countdown stopped on March 20 when there was another new case of Ebola, making Yardoloâs story a reminder that Ebola is far from over. Benno Muchler reports from Monrovia.
Benno Muchler revisits Margibi County - returning to a village that was terribly affected during the height of the Ebola outbreak. He first went in September with a local burial team. Since then, more than a dozen villagers died. Survivors are devastated and complain about a lack of government help.
