The Wider Image: Ebola survivors battle grief and stigma in eastern Congo
Kavota Mugisha Robert, a healthcare worker, who volunteered in the Ebola response, decontaminates his colleague after he entered the house of 85-year-old woman, suspected of dying of Ebola, in the eastern Congolese town of Beni in the Democratic Republic of Congo, October 8, 2019. "We came as fast as we got a call from his family, they were afraid to approach him." I am aware of the risk of Ebola but I protect myself and I do not touch anything without my gloves. I help preserve my community from this deadly virus. " Said Kavota. REUTERS/Zohra Bensemra SEARCH "EBOLA ZOHRA" FOR THIS STORY. SEARCH "WIDER IMAGE" FOR ALL STORIES.
