Decontee Davis knows how she got Ebola. Her fiance's aunt was gravely ill with a fever, unable to bathe herself. Decontee helped.
A week later, Decontee and her five-year-old son began to feel sick. They both had a fever, chills and severe headaches.
It felt like malaria. "We went to the drug store for a malaria medicine," she says. "My son responded to treatment, but I did not."
Over the next week, her fever worsened. She lost her appetite completely and began vomiting.
