Ebola: Life at Ground Zero

This photo taken Saturday Nov. 22, 2014 shows a tree repeatedly smoked by villagers to catch bats in the Guinean village of Meliandou, some 400 miles (600 kms) south-east of Conakry, Guinea, believed to be Ebola’s ground zero. The official theory on how Ebola started is that somehow the virus was transmitted from its reservoir host, thought to be fruit bats, to humans and spread through the region plagued by bad roads, dense population and a problematic health care system.
