The Liberian president has declared a state of emergency as the death toll from the Ebola crisis continued to increase.
Some 282 Liberians are among the 932 people who have died from the deadly virus across west Africa.
Hospitals and clinics across Liberia have been forced to close as the disease spreads, while the army has been deployed in the worst-hit areas.
"The government and people of Liberia require extraordinary measures for the very survival of our state and for the protection of the lives of our people," President Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf said.
"I ... hereby declare a State of Emergency throughout the Republic of Liberia effective as of August 6 2014 for a period of 90 days."
