Ebola: Sierra Leone Begins Three-day Lockdown

A three-day curfew is currently under way in Sierra Leone. The curfew was imposed in order to enable health workers find and isolate cases of Ebola and halt the spread of the deadly disease.

The measure was taken by the Sierra Leone government because many people have been reluctant to seek medical treatment for Ebola, fearing that diagnosis might mean death as there is no proven cure yet.

A team of 30,000 volunteers is going house-to-house to find those infected and distribute soap.
