“We are at a crucial point in the epidemic. Yes, the number of patients in the treatment centre has reduced significantly but new cases from a number of different chains have emerged in recent days, We must continue to work with the community to build trust and ensure that everyone presenting with symptoms of Ebola is isolated and tested quickly. We just cannot let our guard down until the epidemic is declared over.” Berangère Guais, MSF’s Emergency Coordinator in Beni
