** Ebola Fighters Are TIME’s Person Of The Year **
Time has announced its Person of the Year for 2014.
The magazine awarded the coveted title to people fighting the deadly Ebola virus.
From the cover story:
"2014 is the year an outbreak turned into an epidemic, powered by the very progress that has paved roads and raised cities and lifted millions out of poverty. This time it reached crowded slums in Liberia, Guinea and Sierra Leone; it traveled to Nigeria and Mali, to Spain, Germany and the U.S. It struck doctors and nurses in unprecedented numbers, wiping out a public-health infrastructure that was weak in the first place. One August day in Liberia, six pregnant women lost their babies when hospitals couldn’t admit them for complications. Anyone willing to treat Ebola victims ran the risk of becoming one.
Sounds like the proper choice I would say!
