DR Congo: Ebola fears grow over lack of access to clean water

Aid workers say fears grow over possible Ebola outbreak due to water shortage in Goma, where first case surfaced.

People in the Democratic Republic of the Congo‘s Goma city are warning that Ebola may spread because people are having difficulty finding clean water.

The first cases of the virus, which is spread through direct contact with bodily fluids, were confirmed in the packed city near the border with Rwanda last month.
