DR Congo was on Sunday set to declare the end of its Ebola epidemic, but just as it neared the long-awaited deadline, the country recorded two new Ebola deaths, as the country is also battling the deadly coronavirus. FRANCE 24 reports.

Facing the threat of two different viruses, doctors in DR Congo are fearful for what’s to come. “Morally it’s very discouraging since we’ve worked for a year and a half, two years, on this epidemic and [we could finally] start to breathe easy. Then suddenly we have to start from zero again. It’s a psychological blow,” Doctor Lusungu Mutuza says.

So they have to deal with a basically constant civil war, now Ebola AND the CCP Virus?! If any country ends up worse off than that, we should probably just move to space.

unpaid troll says:

more fake news. Ebola deaths never stopped. look at the actual statistics
mankind has never eradicated any disease. we just rename them "the common cold" or "the flu" after the new virus loses its luster
