MONROVIA, LIBERIA - AUGUST 19: Local residents dress a sick Saah Exco, 10, after bathing him in a back alley of the West Point slum on August 19, 2014 in Monrovia, Liberia. According to communitey organizer John Saah Mbayoh, Saah's mother died of suspected but untested Ebola in West Point before he was brought to the isolation center the evening of August 13. He came with his brother, Tamba, 6, aunt Ma Hawa, and cousins. His brother died on August 15 at the center. Saah fled the center the August 15 with several other patients before it was overrun on August 16 by a mob. Once out in the neighborhood, he was not sheltered, as he had suspected Ebola - so he has been sleeping outside. Residents reportedly began giving him medication, a drip and oral rehydration liquids today. The whereabouts and condition of his aunt and cousins, who left the facility when it was overran by the crowd, is still unknown at this time. The Ebola virus has killed more than 1,000 people in four African nations, more in Liberia than any other country. (Photo by John Moore/Getty Images)
