In pictures: Battling Ebola in Liberia

Powered by automated translation

Ebola has killed nearly 2,000 people in Liberia, and is now growing exponentially because the sick often remain at home where they spread the virus through bodily fluids. There are simply not enough ambulances to drive across the rutted roads into the countryside where the disease is flourishing. Even when ambulances can reach people, the fear of being transported to a facility where more than half the patients leave in body bags keeps some from going. All photos by Jerome Delay / AP Photo
