Tomorrow is the anniversary of the world's second worst EBOLA outbreak.
Over a week ago, the WHO called the outbreak a Public Health Emergency of International Concern (PHEIC), urging the international community to step up its support. The latest wave has already killed 1,790 people in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, while local distrust of medical efforts and attacks by militant groups have hampered attempts to counter the outbreak.
However, some health workers say besides resources a new approach is needed to combat misunderstandings in the community.
Jean-Jacques Muyembe, the new head of the country's Ebola response team, told reporters on Tuesday night that the latest patient is a man from a mining area in northeastern Ituri province.
The declaration of a global health emergency - the fifth in history - brought a surge of millions of dollars in new pledges by worldwide donors but some health workers say a new approach is needed to combat misunderstandings in the community.
