So, the number of people who have known to have died of Ebola in the current outbreak in west Africa has passed 5,000. But what does that mean for the affected communities?
I briefly visited Sierra Leone, one of the three most affected countries along with Liberia and Guinea, this week.
One perhaps mundane but nevertheless very difficult thing for a first time visitor to the Ebola zone is not shaking hands with people.
I know Sierra Leone quite well, and I came across at least half a dozen old friends.
Ebola is spread by bodily contact, so, although I had absolutely no reason to suspect my friends were infected, I didn't shake hands. :shocked: :zoned:
