Liberia has met targets for treating Ebola patients and for the safe burial of people who died from the disease. That's according to the UN's senior official on Ebola in the West African country.

December 1st was the deadline set by the UN to isolate and treat 70 per cent of cases and to bury safely 70 per cent of the people who have died.

Close to 7000 people have succumbed to the virus in West Africa, mainly in Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone.

Torwon Sulonteh-Brown asked the UN's Ebola Crisis Manager in Liberia, Peter Graaff, about the targets.
