Ebola Spreading to Goma is a Warning, Says WHO
This latest spread stems from a pastor who rode a bus from the northeast to Goma. Authorities have identified the two buses he took before arriving in Goma; these people will need to be screened. He also visited seven churches throughout his trip to the northeast, including Butembo, one of the hardest-hit towns. He allegedly touched many people, including those possibly infected with the virus. It is doubful if all those he came in contact with will be traced.
