Sierra Leonean doctor Donald Samuel Grant (R), accompanied by U.S. medical student Vanessa Raabe, attends to a patient in the Lassa fever isolation ward at Kenema Goverment Hospital in southeastern Sierra Leone, February 7, 2011. Lassa fever, named after the Nigerian town where it was first identified in 1969, is among a U.S. list of "category A" diseases - deemed to have the potential for major public health impact - alongside anthrax and botulism. The disease is carried by a species of rodent, Mastomys Natalensis, found across sub-Saharan Africa and often eaten as a source of protein. It infects an estimated 300,000-500,000 people each year, and kills about 5,000. Picture taken February 7, 2011.
