Junior doctors in Sierra Leone have gone on a partial strike in a bid to demand proper care for health workers who are risking their lives to fight Ebola.
Doctors go on partial strike in Sierra Leone
The doctors have requested a specialized Ebola unit to treat indigenous personnel who cannot be evacuated overseas and have also demanded an insurance policy.
Sierra Leone has lost 106 health workers to Ebola with 10 of them being doctors.
President Ernest Bai Koroma has however assured the striking doctors that their demands will be met.
The World Health Organization stated on Tuesday, December 9, that Sierra Leone had overtaken Liberia in the number of Ebola cases recorded showing that the disease is still spreading rapidly in the former country.
