African Youth News: 27 March 2015
As Ebola is now under control, it is easy for us to overlook the impact this disease has had and the ongoing medical resources needed to ensure that the crisis doesn’t recur. On Friday 27 March, Sierra Leone enforced a nationwide lockdown, limiting public movements in an effort to continue to restrain the spread of the disease.
