Sheik Umar Khan
The Chief Virologist in Sierra Leone who was attempting to curb the countrys outbreak of Ebola, has died of this disease.
Sierra Express Media penned - Dr. Khan’s life will be forever stenciled in our national conscience not because of how much money he may have in his bank account or the luxurious mansions he may have and the beautiful family he left behind; it is his distinct human courage and his act of unimaginable selflessness to lead us in our darkest days as a worried nation. He may not have been buried in a tomb or witnessed state funerals by the attendance of world leaders; but to many of us – he was our Nelson Mandela who led the crusade against a ferocious epidemic that still shivers the spine of an innocent people. - See more at: http://www.sierraexpressmedia.com
