This photograph showed Sister Marietta as she walked among the grave sites of her colleagues that had perished during the Zaire (now known as the Democratic Republic of the Congo) Ebola outbreak of August, 1976. The Flemish nuns, and the African hospital Staff of a Yambuku, Zairian mission hospital treated the first known patient of one of the world’s deadliest diseases, Ebola hemorrhagic fever (Ebola HF). The virus traveled quickly, and a large number of the mission members and patients died in the fall of 1976.
