Sierra Leone has passed a law making it a criminal offense to harbor and shelter an Ebola patient.

Anyone caught doing this stands the chance of facing two years in jail. The law is currently awaiting presidential approval.

Previously, Cote d'Ivoire closed its borders to prevent the deadly Ebola pervasion upon its land.

However, the World Health Organization has called this border-closing measure amongst others employed by several countries 'ounterproductive.'

As at today, 1427 people have died from the Ebola outbreak. This number beats previously recorded deaths from earlier Ebola outbreaks.

The number of Ebola cases are 2.615.
