( 12, 2014)-President Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf hopes the Ebola crisis in Liberia will become history by December, 2014, if Liberians continue adhering to the preventive measures.

According to President Johnson-Sirleaf, the Government targets ensuring zero tolerance on Ebola by Christmas.

Government’s efforts to eradicate Ebola by then come amidst predictions that the virus would have killed at least 1-million people in the three-affected countries by January, 2015.

She said: “The predictions by Liberia’s partners on the Ebola situation have turned into a miracle, given the reduction in the number of cases.”

The Liberia Leader made the statement Sunday, November 9, 2014 during a regular worship service at the Sinkor United Pentecostal Church (UPC) in Monrovia.

The President underscored the important role played by various communities in the Ebola fight and urged them to exert more efforts to totally eradicate the deadly virus from the country.

Also speaking at Sunday’s worship service, the Senior Pastor of the UPC, Stephen Benda, called on Liberians to remain steadfast and rely on God for the nation’s deliverance from the Ebola disease.

Rev. Dr. Benda urged Liberians to continue seeking God’s intercession in the Ebola crisis that has already claimed nearly 3,000 lives.
