The government of Sierra Leone has imposed a lockdown on three more Ebola "hotspots" to stop the disease from spreading. A third of the country's population is now under quarantine.

Sierra Leone has begun a quarantine of more than one million people in five of the country's 14 districts. The restriction means that only people delivering essential services will be able to enter and move within these areas.

Areas in the capital Freetown and other parts of the country will be isolated when more cases are identified, a government statement said, following President Ernest Bai Koroma's address on the eve of the latest lockdown.

The government had organized a nationwide three-day shutdown and house-to-house campaign which ended on Sunday. Health activists collected around 100 bodies and 200 patients during this period.

The quarantine has been imposed on nearly one third of the country, which has a population of six million. A total of 1,813 citizens have been infected with the disease which has claimed the lives of 593.
