FREETOWN, Sierra Leone (AP) — Sierra Leone has warned that it is a serious crime to shelter someone infected with the Ebola virus.
The Health Ministry in a statement Friday also lamented the fact that a number of patients had discharged themselves from hospital in Kenema district, where the outbreak is taking place, and gone into hiding.
The statement said that those interfering with the health teams would be punished.
Friday’s statement highlights the challenges in containing the Ebola outbreak in remote parts of Sierra Leone, where in some cases villagers believe the drugs used to treat the disease were causing it.
The worst outbreak of the deadly Ebola virus, which has no known cure, is currently taking place in Guinea, Sierra Leone and Liberia.
There are 176 cases in Sierra Leone with 46 fatalities.
