AURORA, Colo. (AP) - Liberians in Colorado are sending medical supplies to help Ebola victims.

Daniel Moore, president of the Liberian Community in Colorado, says hand wipes, gloves and disposable gowns are being collected.

According to KCNC-TV (https://tinyurl.com/okgh2oj ), Colorado has an estimated 3,000 Liberians who say they are coming together to support their home country.

The aid comes as the death toll in West Africa from the disease passed 4,000 for the first time in the World Health Organization’s count of confirmed and suspected Ebola cases.

The disease starts with fever and fatigue and can cause vomiting, diarrhea, multiple organ failure and massive internal bleeding.
