Liberia's Aftermath

This summer marks 3 years since Ebola blazed a deadly path through West Africa, killing more than 11,000—nearly 5,000 in Liberia alone. Al Jazeera writer Ashoka Mukpo, a journalist who covered the epidemic and himself an Ebola survivor, interviewed 5 people who experienced the crisis in Liberia firsthand.
In rich interviews, he finds that the doctor, the ambulance driver, the survivor, the body collector, the strategist and the journalist—himself—share a strange bond. For all of them, he writes, “there is a sense of disquiet at how quickly the storm appeared and then vanished.”
