Accompanied by two health workers from Kagadi Hospital (far left), Magdalena is welcomed by her fellow villagers. The health workers explain how Ebola is transmitted and what the symptoms are. They clarify that Magdalena was never infected with the virus to help allay any fear of infection. They also work with communities to which people who have recovered from Ebola return to reduce stigma.
