Monrovia, the capital of Liberia, is the epicenter of an Ebola outbreak that has killed nearly 3,000 people in the West African countries of Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea. TIME’s Africa bureau chief, Aryn Baker, is on the ground in the West African city. She has reported on musicians who educate crowds on the infectious disease, the stigma dead body management teams face, the United States’ responsibility to assist Liberia, among other stories. In the video above, Baker discusses everyday life in the densely packed seaside city of Monrovia, where the stench of chlorine and the sight of thermometers and rubber boots have become commonplace as locals attempt to stem the Ebola outbreak.

Yoganao says:

They should burn Liberia to the ground and sterilize it!

Harry Holler says:

Wow, this reporter is incredibly pretentious.

C Martel says:

Liberia, the rest of the world has shown up to save you from yourselves.  Could you do us all a big favor and stop eating bats and monkeys?  Also, stop shitting in the street.  It's probably a tradition in your country but you are making yourselves sick and the rest of the world is paying the price.  If you do nothing , an aid agency will probably dig a latrine for you.  This is probably what will happen and it also describes the root of the problem.
