A picture taken on October 4, 2014 shows Vee Moillaoh Sherrif, head administrator of Bassa High school in Buchanan, the largest grade school in the second port city of Liberia, in an empty classroom as the school is close du to Ebola epidemic. Lessons have been cancelled and school's out for the summer -- and possibly the rest of the year for Ebola-hit Liberia's children. Schools across Liberia were given hope on November 13, 2014 when the three-month state-of-emergency which closed their classrooms was lifted, but there was no word on when pupils would be allowed back to lessons. Ebola has killed more than 5,000 people, mostly in Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone, and is expected to hit economic growth in the region, as border closures and stigma disrupt the flow of goods and people.
