US troops not need in Sierra Leone

    Reuters reports that Donal Brown, Commander of British Ebola taskforce in Sierra Leone, said he expected a breakthrough in controlling the Ebola epidemic within four to six weeks." He further stated: "The pieces are in place to fight the disease, which weren't here a month ago. So I think you will see enormous change in the next few weeks."  The Guardian also reports Mr Brown comments "I am quietly confident that within the next two months we will get on top of this disease." 
     His response follows a past request by the Sierra Leone government for US troops to provide medical assistance in their country as they did in Liberia. In Liberia, a considerable decrease in new cases of Ebola was announced by the World Health Organization (WHO). This decrease has not been realized in Sierra Leone where WHO put the new cases of Ebola at approximately 400-500/week.  WHO had previously predicted that the total number of cases reported in Sierra Leone, since the outbreak began, will soon eclipse the number reported from Liberia.
