Storyline

Ric Bienstock and her crew spent a month in Kikwit, sleeping in an abandoned house, filming the course of an outbreak of Ebola virus and the efforts of medical personnel to contain the epidemic. Of 316 people infected, 244 died, and "no one knows where it [the virus] came from and where it went" (R. B.). Written by Bruce Cameron <dumarest@midcoast.com>
