Summary
Ebola is one of the most contagious and frightening diseases that exists today. It can kill its victim in as little as 48 hours. When it broke out in Northern Uganda, there were scant resources and little knowledge about how to deal with it at Lacor Hospital, in Gulu, Uganda. For nearly a month, medical staff treated Ebola patients without knowing what it was. Soon, however, it became clear that the nursing and medical staff were at risk from this haemorrhagic disease. In the end, thirteen nurses and the medical superintendent, Dr. Mathew Lukwiya, died from the disease. In Ebola War, the nurses tell the emotional stories of how they struggled to contain the outbreak. Medical teams had to go into the war-ravaged countryside to test and educate the population to isolate those infected. Through interviews, personal accounts and archival footage, this intimate and moving film documents a five-month heroic battle in an African hospital against a modern-day plague, and the final triumph over the outbreak
