Description : They have come to the base to desinfect their equipment, the vehicles and destroy all contaminated waste. Burying bodies, in particular those of highly contagious Ebola victims, in a volatile security environment and with some people resisting them is a difficult and sad job that requires cold blood, mental and physical strength, and a good sense of observation and vigilance. By mid-November, more than 150 Red Cross volunteers from the Ebola-affected communities have been trained in safe and dignified burials and have conducted over 350 burials.
