Ebola outbreak grows in West African especially Liberia.

A health worker disinfects a corpse in an Ebola isolation ward, once a primary school, in Monrovia, Liberia, last week. The country has more deaths than any other affected nation, prompting a quarantine and curfew in the capital. The massive effort to get control of the Ebola outbreak in West Africa, the most devastating in history with more than 1,350 dead to date, has taken some bizarre turns in Liberia. The country’s government on Tuesday quarantined a slum in Monrovia, the capital, provoking clashes there between angry residents and authorities.

The situation in Liberia has been described by an experienced member of one response team as being in “free fall,” while Doctors outside Borders said the situation in Monrovia is “catastrophic,” most of the country’s hospitals are closed because fearful or ill health workers stopped reporting to work, and bodies are lying on the streets and in houses waiting to be collected. Liberia now has more cases and more deaths than any other country, with 576 patients dead, compared to 396 in Guinea and 374 in Sierra Leone. Dozens of health care workers in the country have been infected with the virus. The deadly Ebola virus has been leaving its mark on Africa since the first outbreak in 1976 in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. A total of 2,473 cases and 1,350 deaths have been recorded in Guinea, Sierra Leone, Liberia, and Nigeria since the World Health Organization began reporting Ebola cases in March 2014. Several countries have imposed bans on airline travel.

Qn. If Artificial treatment of Ebola has seemed not to cure the Ebola Virus, Can the use of Natural treatment cure this Virus?
