DR Congo Ebola crisis: Health workers try to contain virus

There is still confusion around the virus and suspicion of foreign health workers here in the eastern DR Congo.

Authorities in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) are racing to contain the Ebola virus after an infected man with a large family contaminated several people, amid fears the epidemic could last two to three years in the country.

Checks have been stepped up along the border with Rwanda to stop the spread of the virus.
