The death toll from Ebola is surging in West Africa, and officials in Liberia are warning that the entire country could collapse from the devastation. Speaking at a recent meeting of the United Nations Security Council, Liberia’s Minister of National Defense, Brownie Samukai, warned that his country’s very existence is on the line as a result of the outbreak, which shows no immediate signs of waning.

Samukai emphasized that Ebola is “spreading like wildfire, devouring everything in its path,” a forewarning of much worse things to come. Liberia’s finance minister, Amara Konneh, expressed similar sentiments at a recent press conference, announcing that his country has been dragged into a “war with an enemy we don’t see.”

“Liberia is facing a serious threat to its national existence,” Samukai told the U.N. Security Council. “The deadly Ebola virus has caused a disruption of the normal functioning of our state.”

Ebola killing national economy, says Konneh
