Surviving Ebola

  • Thursday, June 11, 2015

  • ACB 240

In December, 2013, in a small village in West Africa, a young boy died from the dreaded disease, Ebola. Over the next nine months the

virulent killer would claim more victims than all previous Ebola epidemics put together. And for the first time, the disease escaped the

isolated, rural villages where it had first appeared, and traveled in infected patients by air to densely populated cities in several African

countries. As the epidemic threatens to spiral out of control, NOVA reports from the hot zone, where courageous medical teams struggle to

cope with a flood of victims, to labs where scientists are racing to test vaccines and find a cure. Surviving Ebola includes chilling first-

hand interviews of what it’s like to catch—and survive—this terrible affliction.
