Update: 2:00PM FAMILY members of the 27 police contingent deployed to Liberia for peacekeeping duties have been reassured by the Fiji Police Force that they are in good health.

The reassurance comes after Liberia has been declared by the World Health Organisation as one of the four countries that currently has an Ebola Virus Disease Outbreak.

WHO yesterday declared an International Health Emergency over countries in West Africa which includes Sierra, Leone, Liberia and Nigeria.

Assistant Commissioner of Police Henry Brown says daily reports are given by the contingent commander and so far all of them are in good health.
