Ebola, The Outbreak – PART 3

The Ebola epidemic in Congo has caused the death of more than 2000 people in just one year, and 30% of the victims are children. In the city of Beni, funerals never stop, with 15-20 burials a day. Funeral ceremonies are the moments in which people are most at risk of contagion and for this reason very strict safety measures must be taken. Funerals are also where the pain and sense of abandonment that overwhelm the Congolese population become most palpable, as during the funeral of Liliane, a little 3-years-old girl who died because of the infection.
