Sierra Leone says it is dismayed by allegations that it is not doing enough to combat the Ebola outbreak ravaging West Africa.
On Friday a senior official with Doctors Without Borders said the outbreak is "totally out of control" and that the governments in affected countries and international organizations are not doing enough to combat it. The World Health Organization says more than 330 deaths have been linked to the outbreak in Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone.
Deputy Minister of Information and Communications Theo Nicol said Saturday that Sierra Leone has worked hard to educate people about how to stop Ebola's spread and has declared a state of emergency in the area where people have died.
He said everyone must share the blame for the spread of the disease.
