Sierra Leone's vice president has put himself in quarantine following the death from Ebola of one of his security guards.

The Sierra Leone Broadcasting Corporation late Saturday night reported that Vice President Sam Sumana voluntarily decided to quarantine himself for 21 days following the death from Ebola last Tuesday of one of his security personnel.

The report said Sumana called on all those who have been in contact with the dead man to also put themselves in quarantine.

Deputy Minister of Information and Communications Theo Nicol told the Associated Press that Sumana put himself in quarantine because he wants to lead by example. He said Sumana will carry out his official duties from home for 21 days.
