Earlier, Medical Dialogues had reported about the World Health Organization chief recently urged different political factions in the Democratic Republic of Congo to unite in the battle against Ebola, warning that the risk of spread “remains very high”.

“Ebola does not take sides. It is the enemy of everybody,” WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus told the opening of the organisation’s annual assembly in Geneva.

Nearly 1,200 people have died since last August when the DRC declared a 10th outbreak of Ebola in the country in 40 years.
