Liberian Boy Who Had Ebola Does Delightful Dance During Treatment, Has Since Recovered

Though this boy was fighting a devastating disease, he still found a way to bring joy to those around him.

Mamadee, 11, was an Ebola-confirmed patient at a Doctors Without Borders case management center in Foya, Liberia. A video uploaded to the Doctors Without Borders' YouTube channel captured the young patient having a little fun and dancing for the other patients at the treatment center.

Watch as Mamadee boogies down while other patients look on, delighted at his exuberant spirit.

Mamadee has since recovered from the disease and has been discharged from the camp, according to the video. The little dancer is part of a lucky few who have been fortunate enough to survive, as about two-thirds of patients at the camp die from the Ebola virus.
