According to the World Health Organization, the mortality rate in Congo’s latest Ebola outbreak rose above 1,000, reaching up to 1008 by the afternoon of Friday. This is primarily due to the constant attacks on health workers tirelessly making efforts to contain the virus’s spread.

The eastern Congo outbreak was declared the second deadliest in world history, and its spread has been challenging to control due to the unstable security situation and extensive community conflicts.

Within months of the outbreak, Ebola centers have been repeatedly attacked and an epidemiologist from Cameroon who works with WHO was killed in April during a hospital attack in Butembo. Mike Ryan, WHO’s emergencies chief claimed that a repeat attack carried out on Thursday was successfully contained. According to Ryan, insecurity has become a significant obstacle encountered in accessing, engaging, and serving the communities plagued by the Ebola attack.

Between January and now, more than 199 attacks have occurred 42 of which were directed at health facilities and 85 workers wounded or killed. In his words, “Every time we have managed to regain control over the virus and contain its spread, we have suffered major, major security events, We are anticipating a scenario of continued intense transmission” of the disease.
