Inside the Ebola hot zone

Ebola Webspecial image

IRIN has been covering the West African Ebola outbreak since March 2014, producing dozens of articles on many aspects of the crisis, including frontline reportage, critical analysis of the international response, and explanations of the disease’s ramifications for the region's economy and food security.

Now we are proud to present a multimedia production, Inside the Ebola Hot Zone. Here you will find short films portraying the work of two veritable local heroes of the response in Sierra Leone: a body collector and a social worker; interactive maps with epidemiological and other data; IRIN reporter Anna Jefferys’s Sierra Leone diary; and the most recent IRIN reports on the epidemic.
