The current Ebola outbreak in West Africa began in Guinea in December 2013. From there, it quickly spread to Liberia and Sierra Leone. Cases also appeared in Senegal and Nigeria, and a separate outbreak appeared in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Today, Liberia lies is at the center of the epidemic, with more than 3,000 cases of infection — about half of which have been fatal.

Just as President Obama announced that he would be sending American troops to help combat the epidemic, VICE News traveled to Monrovia, Liberia's capital, to spend time with those on the front lines of the outbreak.

In Part 2, through the lens of an Ebola awareness team leader named Archie, we learn one of the main issues that is perpetuating the outbreak — confusion about the virus itself.
