LIBERIAN EBOLA FIGHTER, SALOME KARWAH DIES IN CHILDBIRTH

Updated: Oct 3, 2018

The 2014 West African Ebola outbreak killed 11,310 people. Liberian nursing assistant Salome Karwah was not one of them. The disease that tore through her town in August of that year took her mother, her father, her brother, aunts, uncles, cousins and a niece. But by some miracle it left Karwah, her sister Josephine Manley and her fiancé James Harris still alive.

Karwah used to joke that survivors had “super powers” because after overcoming the disease they were forever immune from it. Like any superhero, she often quipped, it was her moral duty to use those powers for the betterment of humankind. So as soon as she recovered, she returned to the hospital where she had been treated – the Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) Ebola treatment unit just outside of the capital, Monrovia to help other patients.

Not only did she understand what they were going through, she was one of the rare people who could comfort the sick with hands-on touch. She could spoon-feed elderly sufferers, and rock feverish babies to sleep.
