Adding to the Regency Sabrina AU playlist and plotting, plotting, plotting.

Sierra Leone’s Leading Ebola Doctor Contracts Ebola
The doctor at the forefront of Sierra Leone’s fight against the unprecedented Ebola outbreak in the region has contracted Ebola himself, Reuters reported Wednesday.
As of this week, Ebola has claimed 632 lives in three West African countries, according to the World Health Organization. Virologist Sheik Umar Khan, 39, has treated more than 100 victims of the disease. Sierra Leone Health Minister Miatta Kargbo called him a “national hero” and said she would “do anything and everything in my power to ensure he survives,” according to Reuters.
Last month, Khan told Reuters that he was aware of the risk of himself contracting the disease, which kills up to 90 percent of those infected. “I am afraid for my life, I must say, because I cherish my life,” he said. “Health workers are prone to the disease because we are the first port of call for somebody who is sickened by disease. Even with the full protective clothing you put on, you are at risk.”

A question about getting used to costumes. The women don’t have to wear corsets anymore and the men still wear starched shirts. As a result, things have become more comfortable for the ladies. “There is a ritual. It’s like armor,” Leech says. Leech says that he and Robert James Collier have a regular competition to see who can get into their suits the fastest. Leech says his record is 2:53 (minutes) and he wins because Collier talks too much.
