In eastern Congo, a region already devastated by a quarter century of war, an Ebola outbreak has spiraled into the second-largest epidemic on record, killing more than 2,200 people since August 2018.

The outbreak has been compounded by public skepticism, with many Congolese convinced Ebola is a hoax meant to further destabilize the region — a suspicion that has festered into threats and even recent, deadly violence against healthcare workers.

In “Ebola in Congo,” a new short documentary from Ben C. Solomon, FRONTLINE’s first Filmmaker-in-Residence, meet three health workers who are risking their lives to battle Ebola — and misconceptions about it — in the midst of a war zone.

Watch “Ebola in Congo” above and read the story at FRONTLINE.
