A photographer returns to Ebola-ravaged Liberia as recovery begins

By Robert Meeks

Getty Images photographer John Moore returned to Liberia in January to cover the West African nation’s journey to recover from an Ebola outbreak.

Moore visited Liberia two times last year when the virus was at its deadliest. Among the things Moore witnessed in his return to Monrovia, the nation’s capital, were a wedding, outings to the beach by hundreds, and a change in how aid workers bury the dead.

Moore also covered the State of the Nation address. Liberian President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf said current Ebola cases in the country were in the single digits.
