The spread of Ebola in Liberia is "escalating by the hour", Liberia's ambassador to the US said.
Jeremiah Sulunteh said all Liberians were "really nervous" about the disease, which he said has caused 170 deaths in the country with 362 cases reported.
"It is alarming - our hearts are broken. Even as we speak 4.1 million Liberians are under attack by this virus," Mr Sulunteh said.
Liberia have closed most of their borders in a bid to contain the virus.
Mr Sulunteh said his country was "doing its best" to fight the disease, but support from the international community with medical supplies would be welcomed.
