Makeshift Community Care Centers Attempt To Care For Ebola Patients In Sierra Leone

NPR: World’s Slow Response To Ebola Leaves Sierra Leone Villages Scrambling
“…International governments and aid groups have scrambled to open Ebola treatment centers in [Sierra Leone]. … In the meantime, most sick people are being directed to makeshift, government-run centers. … These community care centers — and larger holding centers — were originally conceived of as temporary triage posts. … But right now, there’s no better place to go. So sick people are getting stuck at these triage centers…” (Aizenman, 12/5).
