Operation Western Area Surge

     Sierra Leone's answer to the increase of new Ebola patient is now known as "Operation Western Area Surge" according to a report by Reuters.  This operation, mandated by President Ernest Bai Koroma, is 15-day exercise that prohibits travel between all parts of Sierra Leone and restricts the gathering of large groups of people. Therefore, there will not be any New Year's Eve celebrations after 5:00pm announced by Koroma. Yahoo news reports that not all were happy with the ban of New Year's Eve's gathering. "A nightclub owner at the pristine Beach No 2 near Freetown, rated among Africa's best beaches, said the ban on New Year festivities was unjustified."

     Unlike the Grinch that stole Christmas, the President stated that he will make an exception for Christmas. "Christians can assemble in the church for the holiday, however they must immediately return home after the service has ended." 

     The mandate also provided many healthcare workers and volunteers to seek infected civilians. This exercise has lead to a surplus of new Ebola cases in Freetown.
