  • Is Ebola's arrival to Mbandaka bad news?

They have been a lot of panic in Mbandaka as the Ebola virus spreads around the Democratic Republic of the Congo which has led to an emergency meeting by the World Health Organization to discuss the solution about the fast-spreading virus.

people are constantly living in fear of the virus as it spreads towards the capital city and its neighbouring states and neighbouring countries.


Mbandaka is located on the banks of River Congo, which happens to be the only route in reaching the rest of the country.

The city of Mbandaka only has two hospitals which are not heavily equipped with state of the art machine or even up to standard. As a matter of fact, there is limited supply of electrical power within the country here in Mbandaka they only experience power for about four hours and that's it.

most of it occupants use solar or generators for electrical power to run there daily activity like the hospitals in Mbandaka.

The major source of domestic water/drinking water is gotten from wells or the River Congo. One major problem is that the river is used as a waste dump for human waste (used as a toilet) and there is a high risk of the spreading virus.
