Since August 1, 2018, the Democratic Republic of the Congo has been dealing with the second largest outbreak of Ebola in the world and is said to be the most complex outbreak to date. There have been over 2,000 deaths so far and over 300 attacks on health facilities, which left four people dead and five injured. Health teams have to work under armed escort, resulting in even more confusion throughout the communities affected by Ebola.
