09:35 The stark and bleak realities of Sierra Leone's attempts to treat Ebola

The United Nations has held a crisis meeting of African and world leaders to discuss what can be done to contain West Africa's Ebola epidemic.

Sierra Leone's President has just widened a quarantine to include another one million people in an attempt to curb the disease's spread, but some on the ground say it's difficult to know whether the national lockdowns are helping, when treatment is so badly lacking.

Twelve years ago, American, David Stuart MacLean was in India on a Fulbright Scholarship when he had an adverse reaction to anti-malarial medication and it wiped his memory clean.
