(elbcradio.com/Liberia/Oct. 23, 2014)-Gender Minister, Julius Duncan-Cassell, says data collection received so far indicates that 666 children in Liberia have been infected by the Ebola Virus.

According to Minister Duncan-Cassell, the report also shows that women are mostly affected by the deadly virus.

She said: “Though there have been no official data on the number of women who have died as a result of the Ebola infection, the ministry was working along with partners to get the total number of women affected by the disease.”

“Data collection has been one of the major challenges the ministry is being faced with,” the Gender Minister also said.

Madam Duncan-Cassell, however, dismissed media report that the ministry received US$11,000.00 from the Ebola Task Force to enhance its capacity to help fight the Ebola Virus.
