Uma das coberturas mais dramáticas dos últimos tempos, o surto de Ebola na África Ocidental vem ganhando destaque nas redes sociais.

Ativistas, jornalistas e fotógrafos que estão nas zonas mais afetadas pelo surto têm compartilhado, em suas contas do Twitter e do Instagram, imagens e impressões que nem sempre aparecem na “grande mídia”.

Nesses perfis, encontramos algumas fotos bonitas, e outras dramáticas, sobre o surto do vírus que já matou 3.431 pessoas na Guiné, na Libéria e na Serra Leoa, países mais afetados pelo surto. Mais de 7.000 casos da doença foram registrados.

Algumas das fotos, inclusive, mostram que, apesar do medo do Ebola, a vida segue seu curso, mesmo nos países mais afetados.

A seguir, alguns dos registros encontrados pela internet.

After drawing blood from the corpse to test for #Ebola, the team members disinfect and take off their suits. With every layer taken off, another member sprays a disinfecting solution onto the person disrobing. The body will have to stay in the home tonight. Relatives of the deceased man were initially very agreeable, then started asking for the body to bury today in accordance with Muslim tradition. A health worker talked with the family and they came to compromise that they'd come help bury the body if it was Ebola-free, but if not, the man would be cremated and the family would have, as a team member put it, no rights" to the body and it would be cremated. #liberia

A woman holds her week-old grandson. The burial team had just picked up his mother from a nearby porch, her body had been there since yesterday. Before the woman's death, the family says that they had gone to a clinic and had been told the woman had lost too much blood during birth and needed a blood transfusion. The clinic didn't do transfusions and the family didn't have money to pay for one anyway. At JFK, staff wouldn't admit the woman because she hadn't been a patient there. Back when JFK was fully functioning, that wouldn't have mattered. A member of the burial team told me that he hadn't heard the family's reasons for her death, but that the body of the dead woman had tell-tale signs of #Ebola. The testing team arrived shortly before the burial team, so there's no way to know how the woman died. She will be cremated today before any results. #liberia

Yes, to keep safe @morethanmeorg tracks all of our staff temperatures daily. If we see anyone with a higher temperature we can flag it and ask them to stay home while we monitor them regularly. So far no staff are sick. We plan to keep it that way.
