Ebola Crisis in DRC 2019 (For the Media)

After eight months’ intense efforts to fight back the deadly epidemic, the tenth Ebola outbreak in DRC is not abating. The number of cases has surpassed 1300, the number of deaths has surpassed 870, and the number of new cases reported in Ebola hotspots is growing by the day.
With a very high risk of Ebola spreading to neighboring countries, WFP is providing logistical support for emergency preparedness in four priority countries: Uganda, Rwanda, South Sudan and Burundi. This includes support for border screening and isolation, logistics coordination, transport and storage for partners, and Ebola Treatment Unit (ETU) design and construction.
