The World Health Organization confirms that there are likely over 600 people infected with Ebola in the Congo marking the worst outbreak in history.
Reports confirm that a good number of the cases have derived from the eastern side of North Kivu province where the outbreak has been brewing since August.
To make matters worse militia groups in the region are taking advantage of the disease and are using it to their advantage as they try to obtain and control some of the country’s vast amount of untapped resources.
There are 560 confirmed cases as of Friday. However, officials believe at least 48 others may have contracted the virus and the numbers are growing.
