A World Health Organization Ebola response team who had been sent to the remote mining area of Kono, Sierra Leone to investigate a spike in Ebola cases may have found the reason for the surge.
Scores of unburied bodies were found in a cordoned off section of a local hospital, at least 25 of them had died over the previous five days. Speaking to the BBC, Dr. Olu Olushayo, a member of the response team said:
“Our team met heroic doctors and nurses at their wits’ end, exhausted burial teams and lab techs, all doing the best they could but they simply ran out of resources and were overrun with gravely ill people.”
Sierra Leone authorities have locked down the area until December 23rd in order to try and control the outbreak.
