People in Butembo, where outbreak began, express anger over continued spread of virus and lack of community engagement
Christine Masika lives with her mother, sisters and a friend in Butembo, the town at the centre of the Democratic Republic of the Congo’s Ebola outbreak.
She knew of many people who contracted the virus. Most, she says, are dead.
“My concern is, this infection is spreading from day to day. It doesn’t stop,” said Masika, 28. “Everyone at home has been vaccinated against Ebola, everyone is trying to remember the rules of hygiene to protect ourselves.”
