On the Front Lines of Ebola / by Morgana Wingard

“I’ve never had a job like this,” explains California nurse Audrey Rangel from inside the Ebola treatment unit (ETU) in Bong County, Liberia in October 2014. Audrey’s days are spent on the front lines of the Ebola response, suiting up in protective gear and caring for the sick. Even as she roots for survivors, she admits that its easy to get attached to her patients: “For some reason you’re sad to see them go.” This short film blends an intimate look at life in an ETU with a powerful story of survival. The Bong County ETU is run by International Medical Corps and supported and funded by USAID and the American people.
