As the Ebola death toll nears 5,000 and the World Health Organisation warns of 10,000 new cases a week by Christmas if we don't stop the spread, we asked Dr Colin Brown, Infectious Diseases Registrar at King's College Sierra Leone Partnership what three things we must do right now to fight the Ebola crisis in West Africa. This is what he said.
We need to do them right now. We’re running out of time. And we need your help.
- £25 can pay for cleaning and disinfectant materials for three families at risk from Ebola.
- £50 can buy three sets of personal protective equipment for volunteers supporting people under quarantine.
- £100 can provide training to a community on how to keep themselves safe and help stop the spread of Ebola.
