Race against time to control the Ebola outbreak


Over the last two weeks, MSF has treated more than 70 patients with symptoms resembling those of Ebola in Kailahun treatment centre, eastern Sierra Leone. MSF is concerned about a possible increase in patients in the coming weeks, as teams on the ground are starting working to find people sick with the virus.

 « The situation is quite difficult. At the moment with MSF, we can work inside the case management center. Last week, we arrived at one village where we had 40 patients in just that village alone. It’s unbelievable, I never have seen it before.»
