The Congolese’s health ministry said an Ebola treatment center located at the epicenter of the current outbreak in eastern region has resumed operations after it was attacked last month.
The center run by Medecins Sans Frontieres in the district of Katwa was set on fire February 24th by unknown attackers, forcing staff to evacuate patients.
Aid workers have faced mistrust in some areas as they seek to contain the Ebola outbreak, which has become the most severe in Congo’s history.
The World Health Organisation has said the distrust is fueled by false rumors about treatments and preference for traditional medicine.
The current Ebola epidemic, first declared last August, is believed to have killed at least 561 people so far and infected over 300 more.
