http:// Monday 01 December 2014 Sierra Leone , World Why aren't Britain's Ebola centres in Sierra Leone ready?

 

The British government's flagship Ebola treatment centre in Sierra Leone is running at only a fraction of its capacity as it continues to face challenges.

 

The £230m facility in Kerry Town, run by Save the Children on behalf of the Department for International Development, was opened almost a month ago. But only 20 beds are operational out of its 92 bed capacity.

 

The centre is the first of six being constructed across the country, with the aim of rolling out 700 beds and providing direct medical care to up to 8,800 patients over six months by mid-December. Apart from Kerry Town, facilities will be built at Port Loko, Makeni, Moyamba and two more centres in Freetown.
