A mid the biggest Ebola outbreak gripping West Africa, our Police officers serving peacekeeping duties for a year in Liberia are well.

Chief administration officer Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP) Henry Brown said our 27 Police officers were in good health.

ACP Brown said they were receiving daily reports from the contingent commander as a result of the growing concerns regarding the Ebola outbreak.

The latest report the Police received stated that the officers were all in good health, and if there were any risks to their health the Police would be notified by the United Nations.

Meanwhile, according CBC World News, Liberia, one of the poorest countries in the world and long wracked by civil war, has been the hardest hit of the four West African nations suffering under the five-month-long Ebola epidemic.

As of last Friday, the country had incurred 624 of the 1427 deaths.

Earlier this month the World Health Organisation (WHO) had declared the Ebola outbreak an international public health emergency, but it is not recommending general bans on travel or trade.

The current outbreak began in Guinea in March and had spread to Sierra Leone and Liberia, with some cases in Nigeria.
