SIERRA LEONE, AFRICA - The Ebola strain just got heavier on West Africa.  People of Freetown in Sierra Leone might not feel so free come September 18th.  There will be a four-day lockdown on the country's borders to prevent the virus from spreading any further.

Since March, there has been more than 2,000 deaths believed to be from Ebola in the West African region, 491 from Sierra Leone.

Minister Kargbo says "the aggressive approach is necessary to deal with the spread of Ebola once and for all."

You know what they say, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.
