The UN Police in Liberia are working with the Liberian National Police to respond to the outbreak of the Ebola virus disease in the country.

The UN estimates that more than 1, 500 people have died of the disease and there are now over 3, 500 cases of Ebola in Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone.

The Liberian government has declared a state of emergency and mobilized the national police to help in the efforts to prevent the spread of the disease.

To find out more about these efforts Derrick Mbatha spoke on the line with Gregory Hinds, the UN Police Commissioner at the UN Mission in Liberia, stationed in the capital, Monrovia.
