Liberia Temporarily Lifts Ebola Curfew

The authorities in Liberia said there will be a temporal lifting of the  curfew that was imposed to stop the spread of Ebola.

Liberian officials say the decision is to allow churchgoers to celebrate New Year’s Eve

The curfew in Liberia was introduced in September.

Over three thousand people in Liberia have reportedly died from the disease.

The deputy information minister announced that President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf had ordered the curfew to be suspended for one night so that people could attend traditional late night church services.

He said they should still take preventative measures, such as hand-washing, temperature testing and avoid over-crowding in churches.
