"the Fight against ebola in Congo-Kinshasa is difficult enough in itself, but is made more difficult by the deep mistrust against the hälsoarbetarna and violent attacks against clinics, according to Doctors without borders (MSF)."
"the Outbreak began seven months ago and so far, at least 569 people have died in the province of North kivu. About 43 per cent of all patients in the outbreak epicenter – around the towns of Katwa and Butembo – can not be linked to other well-known ebolafall. It means that smittspårningen is flawed and that there are many patients who are not yet registered, according to MSF."
"the Causes of the attacks and the tense situation is several. Much money has been wagered against ebola in the very poor province, where there are other big needs. The epidemic was also the official explanation, that the presidential elections were postponed in the area, which many see ebolainsatsen as a political tool, according to MSF."
"in Addition, pointing the organization to the police and the military set up various repressive measures against the people to stop the epidemic. It has created even greater distrust among the population and allowed more patients hiding at home instead of seeking help. Since the beginning of the year, 40% of all new ebolafall touched patients who died at home. Because they are not isolated is also a risk that they have infected others, notes MSF."
"the Organization calls for less coercion and more dialogue in the operation, among other things, to get people to get vaccinated."
"Ebola belongs to the group blödarfebrar, serious diseases affecting all the body's organs. Symptoms include vomiting, diarrhea, rash, liver and kidney failure and bleeding in the skin and internal organs."
"the Virus is transmitted through direct contact with body fluids such as blood, sweat, and vomiting. A person must have symptoms to be contagious, but a similar can also spread the infection."
"When the outbreak was found in Congo-Kinshasa in the last year it was the tenth time since 1976 that ebola detected in the country."
"The worst of the outbreak was, however, in west africa, where more than 11 300 people died in 2013-2016."
"It is still not clear where the virus keeps itself hidden between outbreaks. Bats are a possible reservoir for infection."
