Many In Liberia Suffer Lasting Legacy Of EbolaPlay
Ebola has killed more than 10,000 people over the past year in Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea. There are growing signs that the epidemic in Liberia is easing; there has not been a new confirmed case of Ebola for more than a week there. And there are also indications that the economy is recovering too.
But the virus has exacted a heavy price. More than 4,000 people have died in Liberia, and communities have been shattered. For some families, recovery will take a lot longer, as the BBC'S Africa correspondent Andrew Harding reports.
