The ministry of health in the Democratic Republic of Congo, said the death toll from the Ebola epidemic in the country, has passed One thousand.
World Health Organization Deputy Director, Dr Michael Ryan said mistrust and violence was harming efforts to tackle the disease as it spread through the Eastern parts of the country.
Michael Ryan also says there have been one hundred and nineteen documented attacks on medical centres and staff, since January.
According to the World Health Organisation, there are plenty of vaccines and more than one hundred thousand people have already been given treatment. But continuing violence in the eastern part of the country where militias are present, as well as mistrust of doctors, is hindering the W.H.O’ s disease control programme, in the country.
The Ebola broke out in the Democratic Republic of Congo in August 2018 and it is still growing, more than eight months after it began.
It is the second deadliest in World history, so far.
Between 2013 and 2016, Ebola killed eleven thousand, three hundred and ten people, in West Africa.
