Ebola: Obama orders US diplomats families out of Sierra Leone

(AFP) – The United States on Thursday told the families of its diplomats in Sierra Leone to leave the country to avoid exposure to the epidemic of deadly Ebola fever ravaging the country.

“The embassy recommended this step out of an abundance of caution,” State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf said, citing “a lack of options for routine health care services at major medical facilities due to the Ebola outbreak.”
