Description: Caption:
This picture was taken from inside a Russian UN helicopter, in December 2014, when we transported approximately 5000 Ebola specimens from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) field lab in Bo, Sierra Leone, to Atlanta. The dome shaped containers are known as dry shippers, which were charged with liquid nitrogen, thereby, keeping specimens at a temperature of -196° C. The helicopter took the photographer, and the rest of his team from Bo, to Freetown, then on to Lungi International Airport, where they then met a cargo jet that transported the specimens to Atlanta.
