Captured in the Guinean capital city of Conakry, this image was created by Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Information and Communication Specialist, Alex Alvarez, and depicts one of the few children attending school after the country’s educational facilities had been closed for nearly 8-months, due to the Ebola outbreak, and fear of how the disease was being transmitted. Even after reopening in January 2015, as you can see, most parents had still decided to keep their children at home. This was one of the entries in the 2015 CDC Connects, Public Health in Action Photo Contest.
