The current Ebola outbreak in West Africa began in Guinea in December 2013. From there, it quickly spread to Liberia and Sierra Leone. Cases also appeared in Senegal and Nigeria, and there was another outbreak in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Today, Liberia is at the center of the epidemic, with more than 3,000 cases of infection. About half of them have been fatal.

As President Barack Obama announced that he would be sending American military personnel to West Africa to help combat the epidemic, VICE News traveled to Monrovia to spend time with those on the front lines of the outbreak.

The Fight Against Ebola: On the Front Lines in Liberia (Trailer)

Watch Part 1 now: http://bit.ly/Ebola-Part-1

As the Ebola outbreak continues to spread in West Africa, Liberia has been hit harder than any other country in the region. With over 3400 people believed to be infected and over 1800 deaths nationwide, Liberia’s government, healthcare workers, and international aid organizations are desperately trying to contain the deadly virus.

Though the capital city of Monrovia continues to function, Liberia’s worn-down and ineffective infrastructure is proving to be insufficient in stopping the spread of the disease. Those trying to stop it are taking desperate measures as the international community dithers with lackluster efforts to help. VICE News went to Liberia to spend time with those on the front lines of the fight against the disease.
