    Britain’s flagship facility in Sierra Leone has treated just 28 patients so far, despite £230million investment to fight disease.
    The Department for International Development has put £230million towards helping Sierra Leone fight Ebola, but only 28 people have been treated in the new facility since it opened several weeks ago.
    Another hospital a few miles away is having to turn Ebola victims away from its doors, meaning that they return to their homes and risk further infection in the community.
    The British response to the Ebola crisis is facing serious criticism locally for its management, and has been called a “complete mess”, by aid workers in Sierra Leone.
    Questions have been raised about DFID's decision to hand the management of the new facility in Kerry Town, near the capital of Freetown, to the charity Save the Children. :shocked: :zoned:
