Sierra Leone Begins 3-Day Lockdown to Combat Ebola

Freetown, September 19 (RHC)-- Sierra Leone has begun a three-day nationwide lockdown in an effort to contain Ebola. Residents have been told not to leave their homes from Friday to Sunday, as health workers go door to door to identify cases and educate people.

Doctors Without  Borders has criticized the measure, saying: "Forced quarantines and lockdowns are driving people underground and jeopardizing the trust between people and health providers."

In related news, in Guinea, eight bodies have been found after a team of Ebola health educators and journalists went missing in a remote area. The team was attacked with rocks by residents when they arrived in the village earlier this week. A government spokesperson told Reuters the victims were found in a latrine.
