Sierra Leone’s vice president has put himself in quarantine following the death from Ebola of one of his security guards.

The Sierra Leone Broadcasting Corporation said Sam Sumana had decided to quarantine himself for 21 days following the death from Ebola last Tuesday of one of his security personnel.

The report said Mr Sumana called on all those who had been in contact with the dead man to also put themselves in quarantine.

Deputy minister of information and communications Theo Nicol said Mr Sumana put himself in quarantine because he wanted to lead by example. He said Mr Sumana will carry out his official duties from home for 21 days.
