Travel Alert: Sierra Leone [November 8, 2021]

Travel Alert

A fuel tanker exploded in Freetown, Sierra Leone, killing at least 98 people. Several people have been reported in critical condition. Two vehicles collided on a highway near the fuel tanker, resulting in leakage of fuel that led to a major explosion and fire disaster. Hospital officials called in as many doctors and nurses as they could overnight to tend to the wounded. The country’s health care sector is still recovering from the 2014-2016 Ebola epidemic, which killed many of the West African nation’s doctors and nurses. Vice President Mohamed Juldeh Jalloh visited two hospitals overnight and said Sierra Leone’s National Disaster Management Agency and others would “work tirelessly” in the wake of the emergency.
