Ebola fails to stop elec­tion

The Star Early Edition - - WORLD -

WITH the num­ber of re­ported Ebola cases in Liberia drop­ping, au­thor­i­ties have given the go-ahead for elec­tions on De­cem­ber 16 in the West African na­tion. The elec­tion was sup­posed to have been held on Oc­to­ber 16, but there were hun­dreds of new Ebola cases each week, lead­ing to a post­pone­ment. The rate of in­fec­tion has dropped to fewer than 100 cases weekly.
