In a bid to contain the rapidly escalating Ebola epidemic, Sierra Leone recently instituted a three-day quarantine during which time the nation’s residents were told to stay at home to avoid infection. But as we reported, this mandatory lockdown resulted in major food shortages in many parts of the country, turning an otherwise benevolent effort into the equivalent of forced genocide.
After urging people to stay home for their own safety, and promising to provide necessary rations, Sierra Leone’s government had trouble actually following through with this plan. Part of this was due to the fact that, because of the shutdown, the transport of food and other necessary supplies came to a grinding halt, resulting in immediate shortages.
The effort not only failed to slow the spread of Ebola but also created major social upheaval that The Common Sense Show‘s Dave Hodges says is inevitable with any quarantine scheme.
