‘COVID-19 and State of Emergency: implication for freedom of expression in Liberia’

  By Urias Teh The surge of the global COVID-19 pandemic has provided a compelling reason for States to impose restrictive measures, some in the form of health protocols to beat back the spread of the deadly disease.
