Ebola treatment center re-opened in DR Congo


The treatment center for the Ebola virus has been reopened in eastern DR Congo after an attack by gunmen last Wednesday forced its closure.

The center, located in Butembo in the troubled province of North Kivu, reopened on Saturday, the health minister confirmed the information via the ministry’s bulletin.

Repairs were also set to begin on another North Kivu treatment center, in Katwa, that was set ablaze on the night of February 24, the statement said late Sunday.

Both centers had been jointly run by the health ministry and Doctors Without Borders (MSF), but after the attacks, the aid agency announced it was suspending its activities in both facilities.
