Comment: It's astounding that people would be so careless regarding the burial of bodies carrying an infectious disease that already claimed the lives of about 1,500 people. All reports of this event seem to have started with an article from the New Dawn, a Liberian online news site.
Dogs in one community in Liberia are reportedly eating the remains of dead Ebola victims lying on the streets.
The New Dawn reports that the Liberian government buried bodies of those suspected to have died from Ebola a few weeks ago in Johnsonville Township, outside of Monrovia. A number of dogs were reportedly seen pulling the bodies out of the graves and eating the remains.
Alfred Wiah tells The New Dawn that the government's Health Ministry was called about the incident but that officials did not do anything about it.
