Ebola! Liberia Suspends Football by mosho2good: 11:41am On Aug 02, 2014
Liberia has suspended all football activities in an
effort to control the spread of the deadly Ebola
virus, BBC reports. There was a risk of infection
because football is a contact sport, the football
association said.
The number of people killed by the virus in West
Africa has now reached 672, according to new UN
figures.
A major regional airliner, Asky, said it had halted
flights to the Liberian and Sierra Leonean capitals
because of growing concerns about the virus. It is
the second airline company to take such a decision,
following the deadliest Ebola outbreak ever.
Ebola kills up to 90 per cent of those infected, but
patients have a better chance of survival if they
receive early treatment.
It spreads through contact with an infected person’s
bodily fluids. The outbreak was first reported in
Guinea in February. It then spread to Liberia and
Sierra Leone.
