Daily life in Susan's Bay - a slum of crowded tin-roofed homes in Freetown. Overcrowding and dangerous hygienic conditions in slums such as Susan's Bay are a factor for the high transmission of the Ebola virus, as well as diarrhoea, malaria, tuberculosis and cholera infections. A woman passes near a home where nine people died of Ebola and the rest of the family fled the area.
