The deadly and incurable ebola virus is spreading like wildfire in Sierra Leone.
The BBC News reports that, "Sierra Leone says its death toll from the contagious Ebola virus has doubled in one week, with hopes of containing the outbreak fading. Health ministry officials said at least 12 people had been killed by the deadly virus, up from six last week."
The disease is raging out of control despite efforts to contain it.
According to the BBC, "They say the confirmed deaths were in the east, near the border with Guinea - the epicentre of the outbreak that has killed more than 200 people this year. There is no cure or vaccine for Ebola - one of the world's deadliest viruses."
Guinea has been worst affected by the virus.
