buzzfeed.com — MONROVIA - Ebola is killing Kona Kupee, who loved her husband too much. Kupee is 36. Her husband, Alosho Mumbah, died of Ebola on August 15. He'd known he was sick for a week - he'd been calling a national hotline, trying to get someone to take him out of his house and into a treatment center - but Kupee didn't know he had Ebola.
