It has been over five months since the worst outbreak of Ebola in history struck West Africa.
In Liberia, more than 570 people have died from disease.
But the nation's Information Minister Lewis Brown told the program that they are making progress tackling the spread of the virus.
"We believe now that we are better positioned than we've been in a couple of months to be able to get a handle on this and hopefully to eradicate it from our country."
Talking from Liberia's capital, Monrovia, he was hopeful but quite frank about the troubles his country faced when trying to halt the charge of infections.
"The truth of the matter is we're not just fighting a disease in isolation; we're fighting the disease with people we know. We're fighting cultural, long-held cultural practices and beliefs. And certainly we're not the most enlightened society in the world. And we're trying to bring every tool imaginable to bear in helping our communities help themselves."
"It is truly a difficult fight. We need all hands on deck. We need all those expertise to align behind this fight as best as we can."
'It's very difficult to predict when this epidemic will stop'
David Heymann, who co-discovered the virus almost 40 years ago, felt that this expertise was now on hand thanks to organisations that have finally been galvanized into action.
"This outbreak began because the initial response was not robust enough. But it's not good to look backwards; it's good to look forward now. And what we see now is that the World Health Organization is really stepping up to coordinate activities."
"Hopefully this will help the NGOs and other groups who are working in these countries, better work together, better fill the gaps of what needs to be done and stop this epidemic."
Across the world there are concerns about where the virus could spread next. Christiane Amanpour asked the scientist if he was afraid of the contagion going global. He replied he was scared for the people of Africa but not for those in Europe or the United States.
"Ebola has spread into Europe in the past, into Switzerland." he went on to say. "In Switzerland, it was rapidly contained in a hospital and there were no other infections. In fact, it wasn't even known it was Ebola; it was a fever from an African country."
"Where there's good hospital infection control, there's not a risk that this disease will spread."
