MSF is stepping up its response to the worst outbreak of Ebola ever recorded in DRC. Declared in August, the outbreak began in the small town of Mangina in DRC's eastern North Kivu Province. It has since moved to the larger city of Beni, where numbers of new and suspected cases of the deadly virus have been rising for weeks. MSF is on the forefront of the response, caring for patients and health workers alike. Here, hygienists disinfect personal protective equipment used by medical staff in the Ebola treatment centers, a crucial part of curbing the spread of the disease.
