Ebola is considered the worst public health emergency of modern times. In 2014, an Ebola outbreak took the lives of 4,493 people, with close to 9,000 infected of the virus. The World Health Organization did everything it could to contain the virus, but Ebola was spreading at rapid pace.

The virus might be contained nowadays, but there are still cases of Ebola spreading in West Africa.

A BBC reporter took the road to Sierra Leone, one of the countries hit the hardest by the virus. The reporter goes to villages to see how people live, and how they survived the virus. The experience is priceless when it comes to figuring a way to fight off the next deadly virus.

People lost entire families, from brothers and sisters, to children and parents. How can you cope with such loss? Some survivors tell their stories, how they were able to move on. It is a valuable life lesson, one that we all need to learn.
