FREETOWN, SIERRA LEONE — The CDC says in Sierra Leona and Liberia, up to 1.4 million people could be infected with Ebola by January.

Now that’s a sick prediction and it could come true, unless something changes.

President Obama is already sending troops and extra medical equipment to West Africa. Other countries are promising help, too.

Over the weekend, Sierra Leone was in lockdown mode so health teams could go door-to-door looking for people who are six.

In Liberia, one church pastor told members no shaking hands and no hugging, and even nor sharing the communion cup to prevent the spread of Ebola.

Let’s hope all the precautions and help are enough to keep us from seeing a million more disturbing scenes.
