Sierra Leone will go into lockdown at midnight tonight through Sunday in a new effort to curb the Ebola crisis. The country’s 6 million people must stay home, except for volunteers who will deliver bars of soap and information to homes one-by-one.

According to the Associated Press, the World Health Organization said some affected areas don’t have water or soap access. Reuters reported that while the government says “extreme measures” must be taken to stop “the world’s worst outbreak of Ebola on record,” some are worried it will only increase hardship in “a nation that is already the poorest on earth.”

Updated data from the WHO puts the Ebola death toll at 2,630. At least 5,357 people have been stricken with the disease.
