A new outbreak of the terrifying Ebola virus – the second-biggest outbreak the world has ever seen – is spreading through the Democratic Republic of Congo and there is little doctors can do to stop it. ITV News’ John Ray has seen how Ebola is taking hold.
===========================================
Terrifying disease. Highly contagious & nearly always fatal. If visiting the DRC, remember to keep washing your hands using bottled water. Better idea: don't go there.

Same **** different day, this time could be really bad, 11,000 dead last time, how many this time?

I read with interest that health workers who are trying to deal with this are being harassed and sabotaged by locals.
