Guardian Examines Impact of Ebola On Burial Practices In Sierra Leone

The Guardian: As Sierra Leone counts the days to Ebola all clear, safe burial teams press on
“…As Sierra Leone counts down to 7 November in the hope it will be declared Ebola-free – the date marks 42 days since the last recorded case – families must continue to bear the strict public safety procedures that have helped to contain the disease. No shaking hands, washing hands when entering or leaving buildings, and safe burials for all, whatever the cause of death. … As yet there is no fixed timeline for phasing out the safe burials…” (Ghouri, 11/4).
