There is no shortage of work for men like James Hamilton, the chief grave-digger at King Tom Cemetery in Freetown, Sierra Leone, where the influx of bodies suggested the government has downplayed the epidemic.

Ebola has infected at least 13,000 people in West Africa, and killed at least 5,000. If the deadly virus isn't stopped, the CDC estimates that up to 1.4 million people could be infected by the end of January 2015.
