Aid agencies said, thousands of people in Sierra Leone are being forced to violate Ebola quarantines to find food because deliveries are not reaching them. The Ebola outbreak in West Africa has killed nearly 5,000 people and authorities have gone to extreme lengths to bring it under control, like the quarantines in Sierra Leone. The Disasters Emergency Committee said in a statement, “The quarantine of Kenema, the third largest town in Sierra Leone, is having a devastating impact on trade — travel is restricted so trucks carrying food cannot freely drive around.” Adding, “Food is becoming scarce, which has led to prices increasing beyond the reach of ordinary people.”
