EBOLA: US Evacuates Family Members From Sierra Leone
The United States
said on Thursday it had ordered family members at the U.S. Embassy in
Freetown, Sierra Leone to depart because of limitations on regular
medical care as a result of the Ebola outbreak.
"The Embassy recommended this
step out of an abundance of caution, following the determination by the
Department’s Medical Office that there is a lack of options for routine
health care services at major medical facilities due to the Ebola
outbreak," the State Department said in a statement.
