Liberia Will Prosecute U.S. Ebola Patient

Medical staff members of the Croix Rouge NGO remove the corpse of a victim of Ebola, from a house in Monrovia, on September 29, 2014. Of the four west African nations affected by the Ebola outbreak, Liberia has been hit the hardest, with 3,458 people infected -- more than half of the total number of cases. Of those, 1,830 have died, according to a WHO count released on September 27.

Liberia will prosecute Thomas Eric Dunn, the Liberian national who became the first patient in the U.S. to be diagnosed with Ebola. Officials claim Dunn lied on a questionnaire given at the Monrovia airport about whether or not he had come in contact with an infected person. Dunn checked “no” off for every question, but Duncan’s neighbors believe he became infected when he escorted a sick pregnant woman into a taxi to help her seek treatment.
