MONROVIA, LIBERIA - AUGUST 19: A very sick Saah Exco, 10, lies in a back alley of the West Point slum on August 19, 2014 in Monrovia, Liberia. The boy was one of the patients that was pulled out of a holding center for suspected Ebola patients when the facility was breached by protestors Friday night. A local clinic Tuesday refused to treat the boy, according to residents, because of the danger of infection. Saah�s mother died of suspected but untested Ebola in West Point, and his brother, Tamba, 6, died on Friday in the holding center. The 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)
