David McKenzie travels into the Ebola epicenter

On Tuesday evening, CNN's David McKenzie, the only television reporter covering the Ebola epidemic in Sierra Leone, gave viewers a first-hand look at the worsening conditions.

As part of an exclusive CNN report, McKenzie visited a hospital where doctors are putting their own lives on the line to treat patients.

One doctor described the challenging lack of resources at the treatment centers, explaining that the number of patients coming in is on the rise, even though hospitals are already at capacity.

Patients are kept in isolation, but McKenzie gets as close as he can to Tenneh Naloh, whose husband and son have already died from the disease.

“We are feeling much better”, she says. "We are strong, and we’re going to fight.”
