Sierra Leone News : News Analysis of State of Fight against Ebola
A very important Sierra Leone citizen was this week quoted as saying “We have to ensure that within the next couple of weeks or so, we will put the whole issue of Ebola behind us”. Clearly, this very important citizen is under a huge illusion based on gross misinformation he might have been given by those in whom he has placed trust. This very important citizen has shown, with those words, that he really has no idea of the extent of gravity of what is now unfolding inside Sierra Leone with respect to Ebola.
