Ebola surging in Sierra Leone amid lack of treatment centers, says UN

The number of Ebola cases is surging in Sierra Leone as the country suffers from a lack of treatment centers, while lack of food and basic goods is forcing some people to leave quarantine areas, the United Nations said.

The U.N. Mission for Ebola Emergency Response (UNMEER) said in its weekly report that a total of 1,062 people had died in Sierra Leone from the virus, with the outbreak particularly virulent in the western areas around the coastal capital Freetown.
