A SICK little boy lies abandoned in a slum alley over fears that he may have killer virus ebola.


Saah Exco, 10, lies in the alley of the West Point slum in Monrovia, Liberia as locals discuss how to help him.

The boy was one of the patients that was pulled out of a holding center for suspected Ebola patients when the facility was overrun by a mob on Saturday.

A local clinic refused to treat the boy on Tuesday, according to residents, because of the danger of infection, although the boy was never tested for Ebola.

The virus has killed more than 1,000 people in four African nations, more in Liberia than any other country.

The harrowing pictures show the fear the disease has instilled in populations. They were taken by Getty images photographer John Moore who has braved the disease ridden centres to capture the horrifying face of the ebola outbreak.
