Description: Caption:
This photograph depicts an aerial view of a cotton factory located in Nzara, Sudan where the earliest cases in the 1976 Sudan Ebola outbreak had worked. Dr. Joe McCormick and Dr. Roy Baron, along with a number of other investigators, went through this factory looking for the source of the virus, however, none was found. From these early cases of Ebola, the virus started to spread from the factory through the town of Nzara, and then went east to the town of Maridi, where the virus killed many staff members of the local hospital, as well as numerous patients.
