Concerned about hostage, they went back against some attempts at the worst outbreak of African-American death virus in recent years.

Fights have worsened among militia opponents seeking control of land and natural resources, vaccinations and individual treatments have been discontinued and Ebola spread.

The situation has been so dangerous in East Kivu, that humanitarian workers were temporarily evacuated in the North Kivu region of Beni, near Rwanda and Uganda, last month.

More than 80 million people, facing political instability and the refugee crisis, experts in the World Health Organization have seen one of the most complex public health challenges in recent years.

"Sometimes we hear the left wing of the field in the field and when we say we may lose one of us," said Mimi Kambere, Oxfam's nonprofit emergency emergency coordinator, whose team faced men with machete.

"Sometimes instability does not respond to calls and does not allow them to go on certain days," said Reuters in the Goma town, on the northern shores of Lake Kivu, and other health workers were evacuated on Nov. 17

Ebola was found in 1976, and Ebola has been infected with fourteen, 422 people, and 241 have died in the last four months. The second occurrence of the disease will be the second in Uganda in 2000, if it exceeds 425 cases, according to the Ministry of Health in Congo.

The disease is spread through the fluid's body and bleeding fever causes severe vomiting, diarrhea and bleeding. In many flares, more than half of the cases are dead. In the worst case scenario in 2013, more than 11,000 people died in three years, mostly in Liberia, Guinea and Sierra Leone.

Continuing with the contacts of patients and immunizing with preventive vaccines this year, in the peaceful area of ​​the underwater Congo, the Ebola storm began to emerge. This suggests that the new battle against Ebro will reduce its death, even in cities.

But an official of the Geneva Health Organization called it "a unique perfect storm", North Kivu is a highly populated fight and an epic center like Ebola.

A WHO Emergency Commission in October said the apparition worsened dramatically, unless the response was exacerbated. In November, the number of new cases increased and the viruses were extended to pre-populated areas.

Reuters noted that a statement from the United Nations Office of State for Safety and Health at the United Nations Organization, which recorded 28 violent incidents affecting Ebola's response groups from 28 August to November.

Dead threats

International and Korean health workers are not just barriers. In general, the WHO call them "reaction, denial and resistance" to allow treatment by some Congo.

Some Congo believe that the doctor should spread the disease with vaccine needles. Others do not think the virus exists. They told the doctors, especially local workers, threats of verbal death and stolen cars, said Reuters.

These actions, according to WHO, cause Ebola to be frightened and are exploited by local politicians before the presidential elections in early December.

Those who seek medical help often find non-health medical facilities that extend their viruses, according to doctors.

The area of ​​action of humanitarian workers is also limited by the reduction in working days due to charges imposed by the government, the NGOs (NGOs) and the U.N.

It delays key services, such as blood tests and funeral burial of Ebola victims, to prevent the spread of viruses.

"The aggressive armed groups are a great obstacle to our employees," said Michel Yao, WHO's event manager in Beni.

In some areas, WHO must request the authorization of armed groups to access new patients. To postpone premature inbound care to secure your business via telephone, say Yao, and stop vaccination plans.

"We have never negotiated access to patients. Ebola is a peculiarity of this occurrence," said Yao.

WHO, UNICEF World Food Program and supporters, among dozens of people killed by psychological evaluation, Beni fought two weeks ago, killed 12 Congolese soldiers and 7 armed forces, according to WHO.

There was a hotel in Gunfire, a Ebola emergency center and humanitarian personnel. A building that was building a bed, where the OMS staff were staying but did not burst.

"It was usually scary because violence is not closed," said UNICEF's staff, not asking for a name.

In order to avoid violent balloons, he continued the training he gave in training.

"I went into my room and I went into the shower. It was three hours in the shower," he said.


Because Ebola is effective, it works quickly under pressure: healthcare workers must check all possible new cases, take blood samples, isolate patients and continue to contact all patients.

The slow international response Ebola quickly expanded to the west of Africa in 2013, which is the worst occurrences to date.

In Kongo, visits to potential patients often mean that pitted vehicles drive in the country for several hours, said healthcare staff. Eastern Kong can say danger.

Beni Laboratory takes samples from 50 to 70 samples per day from healthcare workers, but these samples have been tested for restrictions on folds, said the spokeswoman for the health ministry in Congo, Jessica Llunga.

"Until the patient is confirmed to have Ebola, we can not transfer to a center, and we can not vaccinate their contacts, which also frustrates the epidemic," he said.
