Been keeping an eye on the on going outbreak of Ebola in the Congo. The media has been for the most part quite about this outbreak, especially when you consider the 2014-2016 outbreak.
The DRC’s health ministry said the hemorrhagic fever is believed to have killed 198 people in North Kivu and Ituri provinces, where attacks by armed groups and community resistance to health officials have complicated the response. The outbreak, the second this year, began in North Kivu before spreading east to Ituri. Oly Ilunga Kalenga, the DRC’s minister of public health, said efforts to contain the deadly outbreak have been thwarted by violence against health officials and civilians as militant groups battle for control in the affected region.
