Clair MacDougall is a journalist and writer who has been based in Monrovia, Liberia, for nearly three years. She first came to the country during the 2011 reelection of Liberia's President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, and has stayed to cover its history and culture since then. Here are her experiences reporting in the country amidst the Ebola outbreak.
MacDougall: In general, I wake up and listen to the radio. I read the Ebola reports from the Ministry of Health to see the patterns of cases in different parts of the country and look for new developments.
