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.”
