Government organizations and churches are working side-by-side to help save people from one of the world’s deadliest diseases.
The current Ebola outbreak in the Congo is quickly becoming one of the deadliest in history, second only to the 2014 to 2016 epidemic that raged across West African, killing more than 11,300 people.
On April 30th of last year, several cases of Ebola were confirmed in the city of Mabalako. By October, the disease was swiftly beginning to spread to other major north-eastern cities. Doctors and other health professionals worked furiously to contain this budding epidemic, and for a while, it looked like they may have succeeded.
However, a surge of new cases turned up this March, hitting all of the previous hotbed areas once more.
