Just announced on the “Today” show: The Ebola Fighters are the TIME Person of the Year. The magazine will have five covers representing hundreds of people who battled Ebola on the frontlines. Ebola survivor Dr. Kent Brantly, who is on one of the covers, called in to the “Today” show. “It’s an incredible honor to be part of the group that’s being recognized,” Brantly told Matt Lauer. “I think it’s fitting that we acknowledge most Ebola fighters and those who paid the highest price for their service are, themselves, West African.” The Ferguson protesters were #2. Russian president Vladimir Putin was #3. Here are the 5 covers of the 2014 TIME Person of the Year.
