Liberian President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf said Ebola had killed more than 2,000 people in her country and has brought it to "a standstill," noting that Liberia and two other badly hit countries were already weakened by years of war.The emergency food deliveries came as the international community ramps up its response to the Ebola epidemic in West Africa, which continues to spread.Although Senegal has been declared free of Ebola and Nigeria is expected to get the all clear, the epidemic remains out of control in Sierra Leone, Guinea and Liberia. WHO warns that by December there could be as many as 10,000 new infections per week.
