A British doctor working in Sierra Leone has described the horror he and his team have witnessed since the deadly Ebola outbreak struck.
Check it out:
Dr Oliver Johnson, along with a team of British medics, was working to strengthen the health system in the country’s capital Freetown when the crisis took hold earlier.
When disaster struck, they decided to stay and ‘do everything they could’ to help – despite health workers being among those most at risk of contracting the virus.
Today, Dr Johnson, 28, described the crippling conditions the team work in – and the opposition they face from locals who believe the disease may be a government conspiracy.
He said: ‘We’re all aware that there is a risk and that we have to be extremely careful. However, we also know that if we wear the protective equipment properly and follow the protocols then we’ll be OK.
