Day in the life of a Kenema Ebola treatment centre
14 October 2014 (IRIN ), We’re heading to the International Federation of the Red Cross (IFRC) Ebola treatment centre 15km out of Kenema town in eastern Sierra Leone. It’s known locally as the “Ebola camp” because it’s made up of a dozen or so white tented structures set up outside. It is surrounded by lush green forest and mountains loom in the distance.

In Sierra Leone’s Ebola hot zone: A series of reports
10 October 2014 (IRIN ), We set off by jeep from the capital Freetown for Kenema, 240km away. While there are Stop Ebola posters all over the capital, we see very few en route. Every 15 minutes or so we’re stopped at an Ebola monitoring checkpoint to have our temperatures taken and to wash our hands in chlorinated water. Thirteen in all - it’s enough to make anyone paranoid.

Ebola and Sierra Leone – money is the easy bit
2 October 2014 (IRIN ), In the incongruously sumptuous setting of London's historic Lancaster House, representatives of governments and humanitarian organizations listened in silence as a British nurse, Will Pooley, recently recovered from Ebola, evoked the squalor of the Ebola wards in Kenema where he had worked, and told of the painful deaths of two Sierra Leonean children he had befriended, a young brother and sister.

Ebola and "the perfect storm"
24 September 2014 (IRIN ), The new figures from the World Health Organization's (WHO) Ebola Response Team are sobering. If cases in the three worst affected countries continue to rise at the present rate, by the beginning of November more than 20,000 people in West Africa will have been infected. And despite earlier suggestions that this might be a less deadly strain of the Ebola virus, allowing half its victims to recover, the new figures show a much higher fatality rate, in the region of 70 percent.

Ebola horror hastens use of test drugs
