A dispatch from Atlanta said at the Delta World Headquarters, the Vice President updated the Airlines Management on recent developments in Liberia relative to the containment of the Ebola Virus Disease and the emerging favorable operating climate for airlines.

In talks at the Morehouse School of Medicine, the Vice President articulated the devastation brought upon the country by the Ebola Virus and outlined areas of need in the country's healthcare delivery system.
