A report has it that the Democratic Republic of Congo Health workers tackling the Ebola outbreak was attacked and Severely injured by angry residents who believe the Virus is not real. Since the outbreak of the virus more than 100 people have died in the East of the country a few months ago
Four local health workers from the Red Cross were attacked in the city of Butembo as they were transporting dead bodies for burial.
Residents started throwing rocks at their car and two of the health workers were severely injured.
The bodies of people who die from Ebola are believed to be extremely contagious and so burying them in a safe way is one of the most important steps to limit the spread of the virus.
This is often difficult for families and communities to accept, especially when they are used to traditional burial rites where touching dead bodies is common.
Butembo is the second biggest cluster of new suspected Ebola cases after Beni, another large city in the region.
A new report has it that new cases of the virus have been found in Tchoima which is a busy fishing market town very close to the Ugandan border
