Unfortunately, the situation continues to be very bad to the west and northwest, around Makeni and in Freetown. Also, north of Kenema, in a village only 9 miles from Braima's home village of Bunumbu, a new outbreak occurred when the village chief brought his ailing wife from another village to his home village. She had Ebola and a number of villagers died.
Travel is reported to be highly restricted now, with many checkpoints along the road to Kenema, and health screening at each one. Non-essential travel is not permitted. Food transport is still permitted at this time.
We expect further communication from Fodei sometime this weekend and will pass on any additional news.
