The Wider Image: In Africa's monkeypox outbreak, sickness and death go undetected
Dr. Fabien Kongolo does his morning rounds, followed by nurses and trainee doctors at the Yakusu General Hospital, in Tshopo, Democratic Republic of Congo, October 5, 2022. "I'm the one who detected the first case in the Yaboya health area. The case was notified but unfortunately there was no response to our request. The outbreak had to be raging in the West for it to be declared in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) as well," Dr. Kongolo said. "We have no support for this disease."
