Ebola Breakout In Congo, 200 Dead And Rising

The latest outbreak of the deadly disease known simply as "Ebola" has resurfaced in the eastern region of the Democratic Republic of Congo. The outbreak has killed at least 200 people since August when almost 300 Ebola cases were confirmed. The ministry of health said of the cases are originating in a city of 800,000 people in the North Kivu province.

To make matters worse for the inhabitants is the outbreak is in a conflict zone where dozens of armed groups do battle and aid agencies find it difficult to bring help. According to Health Minister Oly Ilunga, his response teams "have faced threats, physical assaults, repeated destruction of their equipment and kidnapping."

"Two of our colleagues in the Rapid Response Medical Unit have even lost their lives in an attack," Ilunga said outlining the severity of the problem when humanitarian groups can't even reach the victims of the epidemic because of infighting between warring clans.

The earliest detection of Ebola in the Democratic Republic of Congo was in 1976. This most recent outbreak marks the tenth since its discovery in the seventies. The World Health Organization has been sounding the alarm about the virus would easily spread to nearby countries such as Uganda, Rwanda, and Burundi. Such an outbreak would be a disaster for neighborhoods without clean water.

Thankfully, a wide range of volunteers and Medical workers with experience dealing with the deadly Ebola outbreaks are in the DRC overseeing operations the best they can. The latest vaccine shows promising results and claims it can protect people who've come into contact with Ebola victims.

The research has also lead to more techniques to keep the virus from spreading.

I wonder if the Dems will go for proper borders once their own children get sick.

Belgian nuns spread that shit “innoculating” pregnant savages, using the same needles over and over on the savages. Send the infected mutts to Belgium’s Catholic churches.
