Ebola Awareness Campaign Begins

Sierra Leone launched a new campaign Thursday to try to contain the spread of the ebola virus. Initial reports -- describing the effort as a nationwide lockdown -- were wrong. Instead, the campaign is officially called the House-to-House Ebola Talk.

World Health Organization spokesperson in Sierra Leone Nyka Alexander spoke from the capital Freetown about the new campaign, kicked-off with a speech by President Ernest Bai Koroma.
