This photograph, taken by Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) EIS officer, Dr. Roy Baron, showed a graveyard in Sudan, where the first cases were laid to rest during the country’s 1976 Ebola outbreak. Dr. Joe McCormick, and Dr. Baron, along with a number of other investigators were sent to Nzara to investigate the region’s outbreak. Early cases of Ebola showed that the virus originated in the Nzara Cotton Manufacturing Factory. From there it spread through the town of Nzara, and then went east to the town of Maridi. The Ebola virus infected 284 people in Sudan, with 117 deaths.
