Mr. Conn, shown here wearing a respirator inside a plastic isolator, became ill with Ebola-like symptoms while working on the Yambuku survey effort. Worried that Conn was infected with the deadly virus, medical evacuation of the patient from Yambuku to South Africa was ordered. Evacuation of the patient took some time, for it was feared that such exposure of the newly discovered Ebola virus could facilitate its spread locally, as well as internationally.
