Ebola Outbreak: Aid Workers Stumped as Congo Africans Believe it is “Evil Spirits”

International aid workers in the central African Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) have encountered “an invisible but powerful hurdle” to their work—the belief among Africans that the disease is actually a witchdoctor’s curse of the work of evil spirits.

According to an AFP report, many Africans are as a result refusing medical care and turn instead to preachers and prayers to chase away the threat.

Last Wednesday, the report continued, a pastor of a local evangelical church died several days after he prayed for an Ebola victim who went to him for help, a doctor said.
