Ebola in DR Congo: an Epidemic of Rumours

Each month, our journalists go meet an Observer to take a closer look at events they have witnessed.


The Ebola outbreak in the Democratic Republic of Congo has killed more than 1,500 people since last August. On the ground, response teams are not only working to contain the epidemic but must also confront violent attacks and widespread distrust among local communities. Our Observers in the region have analysed and documented the situation on the ground.
