Ebola Epidemic Damaged Ability Of Sierra Leone’s Limited Health System To Cope With Other Diseases, Report Says

The Guardian: Too many dying in Sierra Leone as result of Ebola response not virus itself — report
“Too many people are dying in Sierra Leone not from Ebola but as a result of the response to it, according to a report on the collapse of health care in the West African country. Ebola has killed at least 3,900 people in Sierra Leone so far, but the epidemic has critically damaged the ability of the country’s limited health care system to cope with anything else, including soaring HIV and tuberculosis rates…” (Boseley, 4/28).
