International Development Secretary Justine Greening, arrived in Sierra Leone today to visit UK-funded Ebola treatment and training facilities.
Ms Greening said the breakdown of the health care system has taken a serious toll on Sierra Leone’s ability to deal with the Ebola crisis.
Britain has contributed a £125 million aid package to help to combat the deadly virus, which has killed more than 4,500 people across West Africa, with Sierra Leone, Guinea and Liberia among the worst affected areas.
Ms Greening said there was an immense amount of progress on the 92-bed treatment facility in KerryTown in Sierra Leone.
“We have 300 people working round the clock to bring it on stream soon.”
