Many In Liberia Suffer Lasting Legacy Of Ebola04:45

This article is more than 5 years old.

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.
