383490 06: Volunteers with the Ugandan Red Cross spray a sanitizing solution on a woman and her child who showed signs of the deadly Ebola virus December 1, 2000 in Uganda. The two were taken from their village to the hospital to have their blood tested for the virus. Due to the highly contagious nature of the virus workers must wear protective clothing. Those who contract the virus stand roughly a 50% chance of living with proper medical care. (Photo by Tyler Hicks/Getty Images)
