But an aid worker on the frontline told Daily Star Online more needs to be done to fight the disease at a local level in the Democratic Republic of Congo.
“People need to be taught Ebola is a disease and it is real”
Olivia added around a third of communities in Beni, a city in north-eastern DRC, believe the disease is a conspiracy.
She also said: “There are rumours at a community level and people need to be taught Ebola is a disease and it is real.
