WHO warns of Ebola spread risk
The World Health Organization has warned it may not be possible to contain Ebola to affected provinces in eastern Congo if violent attacks on health teams continue.
The statement comes amid escalating violence nine months after the outbreak began, crippling efforts to identify cases and vaccinate those most at risk.
Earlier this week, Mai- Mai militia fighters attacked the town of Butembo at the epicenter of the crisis. A burial team was also “violently attacked” in the town of Katwa.
