Liberian President, George Weah, says the country has made enough progress against the coronavirus to allow the reopening of the international airport and hotels in two weeks’ time.

A state of emergency which is due to end next Tuesday will not be renewed.

To date, 345 cases of the virus have been confirmed in Liberia, with 30 deaths.

Due to very low levels of testing, the full extent of the disease is uncertain.

Correspondents say although schools have shut down and an overnight curfew is in place, most people have carried on with their lives as normal during the state of emergency, with markets still busy and shops open.
