MONROVIA: The Liberian army has put a third province under quarantine to check the spread of the deadly Ebola virus, President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf announced Monday.

"Lofa county in the north has been quarantined by the army. So from now on, no one will be allowed to go to Lofa, no one will come out of there," Sirleaf said after similar measures were taken in the provinces of Boma and Grand Cape Mount.
