🇨🇩 Is Ebola spiralling out of control in the DRC? | Inside Story

Doctors say they’re terrified by the spread of the worst-ever Ebola outbreak in the Democratic Republic of Congo.
More than 1,100 people have died since August.
1,760 cases have been reported; a fifth of them in the past month alone.
This is the tenth Ebola outbreak in DR Congo since the disease was discovered there more than 40 years ago.
Aid workers are calling for money and protection after three people were killed in an attack on a treatment centre last week.
The World Health Organization has recorded at least 119 attacks on health workers since the start of the year.
Why is the country being repeatedly hit by the disease?
And why are health workers not getting enough help?
