The number of people believed to have died from Ebola in west Africa has risen sharply to 467.
The World Health Organisation says the disease has hit Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone - and is the deadliest outbreak of the virus in history.
Ebola kills up to 90 per cent of people who contract it.
Jeanne Kamara is country manager for Christian Aid in Sierra Leone.
She tells Premier what is key to stopping the spread of the virus.
A Monthly Gift Of $11 Makes A World Of Difference
In a world of fake news there’s never been a greater need for quality Christian journalism. Premier’s mission is to provide the Church with the most up to date and relevant news, told from a Christian perspective. But we can’t do it without you.
Unlike many websites we haven't put up a paywall — we want to keep our journalism free at the point of need and as open as we can. Premier’s news output takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. No one in the USA is sharing news like we are across radio, magazines and online so please help us to continue that today.
For a monthly gift of $11 or more we’d also be able to send you a free copy of the brand new Premier Bible, a wonderful Anglicised version of the NLT packed with exclusive bonus content, reading plan and resources to help you get the most out of scripture.
Your monthly support will make a world of difference. Thank you.
