The Ministry of Defence is to deploy 600 extra military personnel to Sierra Leone next week to help combat Ebola. The decision was made at a Cobra meeting in Downing Street. They will join 150 already in place and will be backed up by a ship, planes and helicopters.


The Guardian understands they are deploying troops, helicopters and a ship - army medics and Merlin helicopters, supported by Royal Fleet Auxiliary Argus - to provide direct support and reassurance.

Much of the focus of the deployment is helping to establish Ebola treatment centres and an Ebola training academy.

They will reinforce engineers and planes already on the ground constructing the Kerry Town Ebola treatment unit. They will help in the training of healthcare workers, hygienists and others at a World Health Organisation Ebola training centre, including 200 military personnel to help run the site.

Three Navy Merlin helicopters and crew plus engineers will be sent to move staff around. The Argus will be used in support as a forward operating base for the helicopters.

The department of international development is taking the lead in the British effort, which includes a commitment to build at least four new Ebola treatment facilities with a total of 700 beds near Port Loko, Freetown, Makeni and Bo.


The aim is to help up to almost 9,000 patients over a six-month period. There is no doubt that Sierra Leone’s public health service is strecthed to the max at the moment. But is this too little too late? World governments should have done more to help contain this from the start I think.

Great the more help they send.....the greater the chances of the disease spreading far and wide......

Why do you think it's a joke?

Ebola is a far more threat then isis and besides that 600 troops is nothing, you guys have more soldiers then that don't you?

Christ man, Dont give them any ideas...Instead of Suicide Bombers, they fly in 30 infected individuals, Go touch and sneeze on stuff....Scary thought.


If they really wanted to they could flood our local Kebab shops with sleepers and infect us that way...they would get hundreds of thousands in just one week....another Scary thought...OK, who's buying a Kebab tonight/ever again.

I think sending troops out for an illness is a joke...

& you can think what you like but Ebola is not more of a threat than IS...
Ebola isn't even a threat!

Tell that to the families of the 5000+ victims of this non threat.

As far as isis, take away their money and they are nothing more then a thought.

Compared to the tens of thousands ISIS have killed...
Talk to their families and see what the bigger threat is...

Anyways it's all semantics...
& No one is taking IS's money...
So they're more than a thought!

It's fine we disagree...
You want troops around sick people for some reason & I want them defending Earth from militants...

So be it!

I just have to laugh at you guys... No humanity at all anymore..... Yes, let us stop all helping each other. Maybe that is why ebola should wipe us all off the earth, as some posters in these ebola threats seems to have lost all empathy with their fellow human beings. If that is so, humankind is doomed, ebola or not. Have we as a race become so scared that we want to stop our fellow human beings just to save our own skins? Heck, if that is so, why dont't we just nuke the whole of Africa, and every city where ebola has been found. At least, me and my family will be saved from ebola then, or not.
