Ebola in the East of the Democratic Republic of the Congo has more than 200 dead. From 291 August Ebola case has been confirmed and 201 deaths have been reported, the Ministry of Health of Kinshasa reported on Saturday. More than half of them are registered in the Beni city of 800,000 people in the northern Kivu province on the border with Uganda. More than 28 thousand people were vaccinated against diseases, the Minister informed.
The United Nations called on the armed groups in the region not to hinder the fight against highly infectious viral disease. Health Minister Olie Ilunga says several assistants have been killed several times by threats, assaults, and abductions.
Action Medeor called on the world community to mobilize efforts to provide access to health care for the poor. Speaking at a World Health Organization meeting on Thursday and Thursday at the World Health Organization, Berth Pastors, executive committee spokesman, spokeswoman for the aid organization said: "While the world community has made great strides, we now see an increase in access to the poor."
Forty-five years ago, more than 100 WHO member states signed a statement on human health, reported Action Medeor. Millions of poor people die of illnesses that can still be cured. In many parts of the world, there is a shortage of healthcare workers, hospitals and medicines.
Five years ago, the epidemic of the West African Ebola epidemic indicates that it is not necessary to fight specific illnesses such as AIDS or malaria. Only a well-functioning and well-equipped health care system can protect people. Primary health care, including immunization and nutrition, can dramatically reduce child mortality, which will ensure fair health for all.
At the end of 2013, the Ebola epidemic attacked some Western African states. In the following months, some 11,300 people were killed in Guinea, Sierra Leone, and Liberia. This disease was identified in the country in 1976, and there was a tenth explosion in the Democratic Republic of the Congo.
