Paying tribute to the courage and mercy of the medicos, paramedics and volunteers who have helped treat Ebola patients, the Time magazine named them as its 'Person of the Year 2014'.

Time editor Nancy Gibbs said, "Ebola is a war, and a warning. The global health system is nowhere close to strong enough to keep us safe from infectious disease. The rest of the world can sleep at night because a group of men and women are willing to stand and fight. For tireless acts of courage and mercy, for buying the world time to boost its defenses, for risking, for persisting, for sacrificing and saving, the Ebola fighters are Time's 2014 Person of the Year."

2014 saw an Ebola outbreak turn into an epidemic in Liberia, Guinea and Sierra Leone, and there have been scattered cases in Nigeria, Mali, Spain, Germany and the United States.
