Sierra Leone’s Moment Of Silence Marks Ebola Outbreak’s End, Remembers Lives Lost

IRIN: Silence marks Ebola milestone, but scars remain
“It was an unusual day in Freetown, a West African city that loves to be loud. For three long minutes [Monday], it was eerily quiet. … The reason was a commemoration. A year ago, on 7 November, Sierra Leone was declared Ebola-free. The virus had killed 3,580 people and terrorized the nation for 18 months. The three-minute silence was organized by the government to remember those who lost their lives…” (Gercama, 11/8).
