Health Officials Warn: “It Isn’t Over Yet” As Ebola Outbreak Rages On And SPREADS

Nearly 100 children have died in during the most recent Ebola outbreak in the Democratic Republic of Congo. Health officials are warning that it isn’t over yet as the disease continues to infect more people and spread further.

“We are at a crossroads,” Heather Kerr, Save the Children’s Country Director in DRC, said in a press release. “If we don’t take urgent steps to contain this, the outbreak might last another six months, if not the whole year.” According to the press release from Save the Children, 65 of the 97 children who have died since August were under the age of 5 years old. More than 180 other children have been orphaned by the disease’s most recent outbreak.
