This comes after a senior epidemiologist was killed last week while working to fight Ebola for the World Health Organization in the east of the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). Health workers are pictured left marching in the city of Butembo yesterday in protest of the fatality. Armed militiamen reportedly believe Ebola is a conspiracy against them and have repeatedly attacked health workers who are trying to fight the DRC’s second deadliest outbreak ever. Doctors in the midst of the outbreak, which has left 885 feared dead (seen right) and 1,367 infected since it was declared in August, are calling for authorities to do more to protect them.
