Arlette Kavugho, 40, mother of six and Ebola survivor who works as a caregiver, holds a newborn Katembo Lwayirweka whose mother died of Ebola, at the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) creche for children whose families are suspected or confirmed Ebola cases, near an Ebola treatment centre in Butembo, in the Democratic Republic of Congo, October 1, 2019. Kavugho was discharged from an Ebola ward in March 2019. When she tried to return to work as a seamstress in her hometown of Butembo, her customers were too scared of catching the disease, despite doctors' assurances that she was no longer contagious. Instead she found work as a caregiver to children suspected of having Ebola only to be accused by neighbours of faking her illness to get the job. To this day, Kavugho has not been able to find the graves of her 19-year-old daughter and two-month-old granddaughter, who died of Ebola while she was receiving treatment and were hastily buried to avoid any further contamination. "I try to find the dates on the crosses that may coincide with their deaths but I always come back empty-handed," she said. REUTERS/Zohra Bensemra SEARCH "EBOLA ZOHRA" FOR THIS STORY.

Kanneh has received no official training to treat the virus that has killed over 7,000 people in West Africa. Still, he works up to four hour shifts in the stifling heat of the red zone, a ward where healthcare workers have direct contact with the highly contagious Ebola patients. In contrast, workers in foreign-run facilities are well trained and well-funded; with limits on the time spent in the red zones to not more than two hours. Picture taken December 21, 2014

The head of the World Animal Health Organisation told Reuters on Monday that the outbreaks could be linked as the virus is most often transmitted through wild birds.

A protester shouts with a sign reading "How many more have to die?" during a demonstration against government spending cuts in the health care sector, outside the Carlos III hospital in Madrid, where a nurse who contracted Ebola is being treated, October 8, 2014.
The Spanish nurse who is the first person to contract Ebola outside of Africa may have touched her face with the gloves of her protective suit while caring for a priest who died of the disease, a doctor treating her said on Wednesday. The nurse, Teresa Romero, was being treated for the deadly infection at a Madrid hospital while Spanish officials launched an investigation into how she was able to contract Ebola despite strict protocols for handling contagious patients.The virus, which has killed more than 3,400 people in West Africa since March in the largest outbreak of the disease on record, causes haemorrhagic fever and is spread through direct contact with body fluids from an infected person.

A sign reading "No job applicants in this area" is posted on the fence of a Doctors Without Borders Ebola virus treatment center in Monrovia September 29, 2014. More than 6,000 people in West Africa are estimated to have contracted the highly contagious Ebola virus, which causes fever, vomiting, bleeding and has a death rate over 50 percent. But infections probably are far higher, especially in rural areas, and researchers estimate the epidemic could reach 20,000 people by November. Picture taken September 29, 2014.

When two American aid workers recovered from Ebola after being treated with an experimental drug, the grieving family of Sierra Leone's most famous doctor wondered why he had been denied the same treatment before he died from the deadly virus. Sheik Umar Khan was a hero in his small West African country for leading the fight against the worst ever outbreak of the highly contagious hemorrhagic fever, which has killed 1,350 people mostly in Sierra Leone, Liberia and Guinea.

A nurse in the hospital holding France's only confirmed case of the SARS-like coronavirus, that has killed 18 people worldwide, has been hospitalized in northern France on suspicion on being infected herself, French health officials said on Friday. Two people who had contact with the confirmed French case, a 65-year-old man who fell ill on returning from Dubai, were admitted to hospital late on Thursday. One was a patient who shared a ward with him when he was in a hospital in the town of Valenciennes, northern France, at the end of April, and the other is a doctor who treated him there. The 65-year-old, who is in stable but serious condition, was transferred to an isolated intensive care wing, which is where the third case appeared.
