Workers wearing protective clothing bury the corpse of a five-year-old boy who died earlier in the day, Friday Dec. 28, 2001 in Mekambo, Gabon. Adamou, who only had one name, was the fifth member of his family to catch the highly contagious Ebola virus in the remote, northeastern town of Mekambo, near the border with Republic of Congo. His mother, a nurse, died after treating an Ebola patient. The disease then spread to her mother, brother and another child.
