Ebola nurse: 'I stayed for the love of my people'

Josephine Sellu, a matron in Sierra Leone, says she stayed there to fight Ebola for the "love of my people".

She was deputy matron to Dr Sheik Umar Khan, one of Africa's leading Ebola specialists, who died from the disease, along with most of his staff.

At that point, she says, the job became scary and many health workers left, but she decided to stay.
