Where normally the deceased in West Africa could expect a traditional burial, Ebola has denied them that privilege.
Those who have succumbed to Ebola, remain infectious. Instead of a funeral attended by friends and family, theirs is now a discreet burial carried out by men in white overalls wearing masks. They’re buried in body bags, not one, but two.
It’s a morbid task, one that is being carried out by teams of Red Cross workers.
