4 Month Old Boy Dies from Ebola Virus in Guinea

4 month old Ebola Victim
It is truly heartbreaking to hear about the numerous individuals that have passed away from the deadly Ebola Virus.

One of the latest casualties of the disease is a 4-month-old baby boy called Faya, who died in Gueckadou, South East Guinea, BBC reports.
Faya is said to have caught the virus from his mother, who died a few weeks ago.
His corpse has been buried in a forest. The boy’s family is reportedly “too scared” to attend his funeral.
“I was there with him just before he died…I had been feeding him milk. I stepped away, just for a short break, but then I was called back and he was dead. I was totally devastated,” said Adele Millimouno, a Medicines Sans Frontieres (MSF) nurse who was taking care of the baby.
The International Federation of the Red Cross and Medicines Sans Frontieres told BBC that “the [Ebola] situation across West Africa remains out of control.”
