Ebola Outbreak: Liberia Schools Reopen After Six MonthsAfrican News Tuesday, February 17th, 2015
Many schools in Liberia have reopened, six months after they were closed to try to curb the spread of Ebola.
Pupils welcomed the move, but some raised fears that the deadly disease had not yet been totally eradicated.
Staff at school gates were equipped with thermometers to take pupils’ temperatures and buckets of chlorinated water for them to wash their hands.
Liberia was one of three West African states worst affected by the Ebola outbreak, identified in March 2013.
More than 9,000 people have been killed by the virus, but there has been a general decline in the number of cases in recent weeks./BBC
