Medair calls for unhindered access to respond to Ebola in DR Congo
Violent protests have broken out in the North Kivu province of the Democratic Republic of Congo. Protesters have attacked an Ebola Transit Centre run by a medical aid organisation in the town of Beni. The region is seeing the world’s second-largest outbreak of Ebola with 591 cases, including more than 300 confirmed deaths. Medair is responding to the Ebola outbreak and condemns the rise in violence and the attacks on facilities supporting the response.
