In the face of the ongoing Ebola crisis, the Liberian economy is being dealt huge blows, receding by over 6 percent in less than six months.

Despite the presence of the Ebola virus and government’s lack of capacity to combat the spread of the disease, Capitol Hill has passed a budget of US$660,236,000 million.
