iOS Interview Questions For Senior Developers in 2020 Part 2
"And today's episode as part two to the previous episode about IOS interview questions for Senior Developers in two thousand twenty. The article that I wrote S- and this is the part two episode where I'm covering article so in this one. I'm going over questions next question. So we'll start with question number four. What is what is NBC? It's a very fundamental question again. Even though it's very basic question senior developers also need to know about and expected to give more detail on the show more depth of knowledge of such basic questions so NBC stands for Model View Controller. Software Design Pattern apple adopted. It came from small talk. Apple adopted its towards their own. Had has has its own reincarnation of it Model is responsible for data controller is responsible or views responsible rendering the dates and getting input from the user and control are supposed to glue views and models together right and be this coordinator control right at the end of the day. Apples flavor of it is More view skewed towards the view. That's why wouldn't really have controllers. Who Have you controllers what you should know? Besides there's this basics That that I just covered you also need to know and understand that model view controller. Nbc is not your application architecture. That's just a design pattern foot of you and if you want to architecture application especially architectures for scale you probably should go for something something else. Something with more flexibility. Something's more advanced at least. I'M VM MVP COORDINATOR. Design pattern or go for a heavy duty architectures such as viper and ribs but again as a as a senior developer. You should be aware of that so erratic flag that could raise here as well simply not knowing what an NBC is right. What what it stands for. And what that's fundamental Basic design pattern of APP Iowa's Apple Development in general I think they use it on all the platforms but nevertheless I again as I mentioned already as a senior. Dev rather the expectation is that you know. Other design patterns and architectures for further reading. Look at Apple. Apples article on their developer portal. It's called model dash view controller Then ABC's Dotto has a great article Cold lighter view controllers. It's from one of their previous issues of Went UP CIO. Had this Monthly I believe issue of their articles. Then there's another article on a con Lou con Lou. I think that's how I say it that come about massive you controller. Kennedy shoes with NBC. Another one is on a Napa soda actual this podcast inside. Iowa's Dev where and I covered the the issues with controller skull the problem with the problems with controllers another article you could read introduction to n. b. b. m. that's also obviously that article And then another episode of this podcast view models to the rescue As far as I recall Andrew in that episode. Goes over a great example of where? Mvp and could could save your bacon in the overblown view controller. Massive you controller code base and another article could read up on a model view presenter. It's MVP by Martin Fowler. It's on his website. March and following dot com. And as usual. You you'll find those links south. Put Him the Up put the link to the article in the show notes and they're in the further reading for that question. You can find links to those articles that I mentioned. The next question is number five. What do you know about? Singleton's where would you use one? And where would you not Singles Singleton Severi? It's very common design pattern. It'S CONSIDERED TO BE CO CORE. Competencies design pattern and it's used everywhere throughout all of the apple examples and They they actually utilizing soon bilton themselves in the API COCA API that they provide a four us. This jar short answer. Singleton Is a class that returns only one. And the same instance no matter how many times you requested what it really means at the end of the day that you have a type but say networking services and you implement a static or property rather. I think that's typically the implementation called shared or something like that instance and then in there you basically cash that instance the very first time. It's accessed you initials it and then you cash it and that's it. And then every other time when the in through that static property the instances rick. The SINGLETON has requested to return the same instance Singled and Sarah unfortunately anti pattern. They have a lot of issues with them and specifically they encourage global states. The they they really did. Sir and there are a lot of issues with dependency injection they. They really don't help at all with it. They make it more difficult. They you have to tie things to specific concrete types instead of relying and interfaces things like that so and in general even though apple promotes it. I do not recommend using singleton's and I know it's a it's a kind of a debatable topic if you will but there are a lot of prominent articles written about by prominence experienced developers Basically kind of debunking if you will the design pattern than explaining why. It's an anti pattern. So the Rad flak for this question as well you should actually know what a singleton the is and how to implement it and how to work with it even though it's a necessary and or unfortunate evil quite often and for further reading to to kind of get into the details of why. I'm saying it's an anti pattern. There are two resources you could go for. One is actually episode of this podcast. Called Y Singleton are evil and another one is actually similar styles. Single single are evil. It's by you can find this article on Viki Dot C two DOT com. They cover it more. They're in in more details in an an unwrap all the issues with singles. So the next questions number six. What's different between delegates and TV? Oh so this is a this is also quite common question on on. Irs INTERVIEWS THE DETAILED. Yar The cute. Let's let's start with What what is Ki? Ki Ki all right cave your sense. Four key valley observation so delicate design pattern and Kiva observation both are techniques for to establish relationships between objects and delegates establishes and declares using the delegates. You declare one to one relationship using protocols delegate protocols and Dan with Kiva labs operation you declare and establish a many to many relationship using other techniques but mostly. It's a kind of declarative key valor. While the that that's in the name Kiva Observation and your keys likely will be there strings or I believe you could use like selectors or something about for

"You Google Nike Shoes. You're telling us on the specific. Yeah on facebook. Given who you're friends with or the groups they like tells you something specific most the Pixel Rate Datu in on twitter. It's IT'S A smaller audience. But that audience to your point can be such highly engaged audience inside is engaging with news and content In such an interesting way like I'm this is actually after. I left twitter but one thing I saw. That was really cool was Disney Disney plus when they launched a couple months ago. They did this thing and I don't I. It's a really cool feature haven't seen they're really available to everyone where you could say like this tweet. It was a twitter about demand. Lauren which is cool. Sarwar show. We've already talked about it. I was a big Fan. Oh it's so good Jon favreau and that shows wonderful into stores in general I can come back to a star wars. Absolutely call me but what was really what they said you know I think was before the show came out like this tweet men Lawrence coming out on a couple of weeks and for like this tweet we will. Dm You every time. A new episode drops. I love it and I was like. Whoa what an interesting engagement tactic. That's see that's like. That is a brilliant marketing tactic. But it's even better customer success tactic because the I did that I liked it because I was like I. I'm like I don't know when these are going to be coming out and I don't know and I just got Disney plus I don't know and I don't follow any traditional news channels so mike. How do I know when stuff comes out? Yeah I think about it all the time in fact if any listeners. Have some type of capability like that like absolutely send it our way will promote it but I like I totally agree. That is such a brilliant thing and if you think about the evolution of that tool in twitter as something that advertisers could leverage or like any. Tv show should be using that right. You get it do you. You get it right. You know when I'm building content for customers or prospects I'm always thinking about. How do we create something that is timely relevant engaging total rape and? I feel like that that piece of that feature or that tactic sort of knocks. All three of them out of the park. Ray because its relevance knows that I'm the Disney probably already knew it was a Disney plus subscriber knows that it's relevant to me any. They know that I follow bar camel and I follow Star Wars Somali. Okay this guy's GonNa you know it's relevant. It's really engaging because it gives me a really cool action to take can just press one button and I got. I understand the benefit right so it's engaging and then the timeliness of it is perfect because one the show is coming out so it's like really timely and when I get that. Dm It's to show. Is here click here to watch that episode and I have found over my career that once if you're able to put content in front of a custom that hits those three marks your engagement rates go through the roof. Your conversion goes the roof. Your customer satisfaction goes through the roof. And I think that's such a great example of of a of a business innovating to create advertising or in customer engagement tools that allows businesses to exactly that wonder how much that cost. We should look at that for marketing. Trends that will be great. The sodas that just great. Yeah I'll share from my twitter like hey when you want new episodes Just like this tweet. Yeah no I love it. I mean and and there's another segment of the twitter sphere that I think is super fascinating under appreciated Unless you have any sense about this but like super I don't know what they're called active passive users mine. People like who like. I'm trying to think of getting my brother. Something like this doesn't really liked any stuff doesn't really comment ever Just scroll through the feed every day like every morning every night scroll through follows new people but doesn't really engage with the content but is like I am a monthly active user generated media And I think that there's just so many people out there now that like every now that you can see whether it's instagram or twitter. Whatever who liked what you can look at all that you get more and more people that are like I'm just not gonna like anything anymore because they don't want people to know what I'm making but you are looking at Maybe you're looking at accounts that you shouldn't be or whatever it is or maybe have the burners Katie I think that those audiences are so like interesting to target and if you give them a reason to engage that super super valuable And they wouldn't normally be engaged. That's right when wet I've been an avid for a but even early might twitter usage. I didn't really tweet. I rarely liked and by even though I'm a homeowner you're at times subscriber. I actually rarely start reading my news on the New York Times APP. I survived because they don't have access to those stories but I often get the stories directly from the writers on twitter because I follow my favorite writers and once they posted news story. I just click from there and I go straight into reading so There's so much of that and then it's a lot of those users also only tweet when they have a customer service complainer. Make this if you call somebody to complain you on the phone for an hour and then you hang up if you send him an email to blackbox never going to hear back but if you tweet at a brand to complain about something thirty seconds or like how can we help you redeem redeeming you. So it's it. There's there's definitely a lot of people who are more passive users but will get a lot of value engagement from from twitter. I I used to be one of those myself okay. Any final thoughts on on the best tips for twitter. What should our our marketing trends listeners? Keep an eye out for yeah. That's a good question Look I think the coolest thing about twitter is that it allows you to participate in cultural events in a way that no other platform allows you to write. I think as marketing moves into the space. Where it's harder advertise if people because people are buying themselves out of advertising distribution then one way to really getting them is when there is a cultural conversation taking place if you can contractually interject your brand in it. You can get a lot of impressions and a lot of consideration from that. Here's a great example was gonNA been awhile remember there was a When there was a blackout in the middle of the Super Bowl and Orios. Yeah 'cause I mean really cool. I forget exactly what he did. This is sort of an old example but there are just so many conversations taking place or even when the Peleton ad they just came out a couple months ago and everyone went after it and then I think James Franco had a brand of Tequila and they did like they create. They did an ad right leg a fast follow had the same actress and use those routes and twitter was the place where that conversation was taking place in. Twitter was a place that he he interjected that story so again to go back one gray way for brands to get to get in front of users is to participate in the cultural conversation. Best taking place in Meek Brand. Relevant twitter is often where the conversations taking place. Because that's where that's where that that timeline is is is where those conversations are happening so my tip is if you can find opportunity for your brand to interject an a story now. You have to be careful. You can backfire but but I think if you do it well and any awful way it can be a real source of leads. Exposure and ultimately conversion speaking of interjecting Before we get. Outta here we're going to do our lightning round. These questions are fast in order the lightning round of..
"kiva" Discussed on Marketing Trends
"I'm like twenty dollars for this comes back to me at some point in my life but does executive rate so The challenge we have is a marketing organization. Is How do we get to? What's really beneficial to our customers rate? Nobody very few people I would say are are going on Google googling Howard participating microfinance no total. That's not the thing most people are looking for. I you know I want to give back. I've been lucky a few times And I WANNA do some good. I WANNA pay forward. What are the best ways for me to pay it forward? And and how do we insert Kiva in that in that decision? Set that consideration set. I'm sorry So that they can understand what's unique AKIVA versus all the other amazing options to do good and can be considered and then ultimately convert and get them to become a given customer because our retention rates are incredible. The you know once you gotTa Repaid. Eighty percent of our customers would go inland again. Yeah so it's really about. How do we feel the top of the funnel Which is you know. It's challenging for any brand because we live in an incredibly busy time. We live in a time in which customers are buying themselves out of advertising right. Think about the media. The Media. Space Today When you when you sign up Netflix. When you're buying Hulu without ads when you subscribing to Disney plus when you're doing is you're buying yourself out of advertising that's one of the main value props which means that wait. How do I reach that person now? How how can I get in front of them? And when we're now you put on top of that. That is a nonprofit which means that we are incredibly careful about how we use our funding because if any dollar that goes into marketing means that it's a dollar doesn't go out on the field so we have to be incredibly incredibly awful and and in rigorous about our marketing investment which makes complete sense so That's the challenge right. How do we get more and more people aware of what we do aware of? What makes Khiva unique enjoying the Kiva community? Yeah if this was attack product it would be like in the first thirty days like you position like if you had an algorithm that could position and this would would not be something that would be a good idea. But for Siegel argument. Go on you position that the first project that somebody does that somehow you know they get that back in the first thirty days or sixty days or ninety days or whatever a transparent time horizon so it's like they know that the system works and that they get the more immediate gratification and then it's like you know after that you were to go into like the less likely once again not not saying that that that's a good idea. But that's that's the sort of thing people want to to no end like this is like the classic. What is the person really buying? I would posit. I don't know if you know anything on this that it's not like customers are sitting there at the end of twenty nineteen like. I have a hundred bucks this year that I'm going to spend on charity. Which one am I GONNA do like? That's probably not what they're doing. They probably come across. Kiva somehow through one of your funnels and is saying like wow. I didn't know about this like I can. I can do this. Twenty five bucks today. This is fine. I'm just GONNA fire. Fire the bullet or you know. Maybe it's after the Thirteenth impression impression that that are like hey. I'm finally ready to do this. Or Hey you know I got my bonus this month or whatever it is And now top of mind in some way but I would imagine that. It's not like a traditional You know type of a thing because they're such a specific way to do it right and there's such a specific thing that they're supporting I don't know maybe I may be wrong but no I. I think I think you're onto something one. I WANNA address your earlier idea which is not a bad idea. I think you're onto something which is to make an analogy right. It's the urban legend or of facebook. Once you get that fourteenth friend yeah. You're not locked in every single successful product. Has that that loop of like once you close the loop? That user now has a much higher likelihood of becoming a retained customer keeping us no different and we believe a Lotta that is once you're able to get your repayment back in help some new. I think there's a there's there's there's a light bulb goes off. Say Oh I get it my number my my investment or my my contribution goes further on Kiva Org than other places that could investing in so we are actually working through a lot of ideas of how do we. How do we make that feedback loop shorter? I think that I think that's the right problem to try to solve whether it was exactly the same way that you described it. I don't think they'll be the case but I think that's exactly the question right. It's how do we make that feedback loop really really short? Or how many updates like is it right? You know if you are donating to you know jill to buy a cow or something like that. It's like an. She gets to do so. Do they get to go from just individual contributors or is it like a goal plus? Kiva or like you know if she needs two hundred box and like Ian does you. A hundred and then Dylan are headed girl. Sitting next to me does fifty and then it's like open that extra fifty bucks like open a month is how does that last part. Every loan has thirty days to be fully funded. Okay yeah so let's say Joe who needs a cow post on key without org in. She needs five hundred dollars to buy that cow. Then people can come in discover her story and they can give as little as twenty five dollars but someone might be become so enamored with with her story to say I will give you. I will not give or lend you the full for a five hundred dollars. However the the more typical experiences Dylan will give twenty five. I'll give fifty IAN will give one hundred dollars or until we get to five hundred we get when we got the five hundred. Got To say Jill your guy funded so it's really it's like we in the actually what's really cool. Is You can see when you when you make alone. You can see the other people in the community who helped in that alone and then you can actually build teams so in so for example. I every loan that I make on dot org is associated with the northwestern university team. And it's just a cool way to keep tabs on parts of a keeps communities. How different communities are giving? What are they passionate row giving to? This is really funny. But it is for example the most to active communities on Kiva The most active teams are Christians. The Christian team in the eighth east team like yeah. It's it's amazing. It's incredible how everyone can agree that when you get to help somebody to be empowered into their lives that everyone wants support that idea so you can join any number of teams when you're Kiva Org weather it's university whether it's your religious affiliation whether it is worth the city you live in an but they're all these cool teams and you get updates in some. You know if you're in a team you can say. Oh I just saw this amazing loan to Joe who needs a cow. Who else wants to help out there? Can you can actually communicate with one another and and drive up and drum up support from a specific borrower. Yeah I would imagine that those network effects are probably pretty massive. Especially 'cause you're giving people who are already have an affiliation with each other a platform to do do it on final piece on even that I wanna get into some of the stuff From from twitter Fan So When you came into the role was one of the things that surprised you about marketing Akiva. What surprised me really shouldn't have been a surprise. But it's just the level of passion for the brand you know Marketer spend their whole careers trying to get people to be really passionate about the service or the product that they offer and I came into. Kiva assuming no different the great. I want a big part of my job will be to convince people that was a great place for you to be engaged in and turns out people who are our user base are just so passionate about it already. They get it. In fact they feel ownership over over the Kiva brand they've been with us for years and years and make our jobs in a way a little bit easier because you're a great people really get in their fashion other brand in in other ways you feel you feel so much You really don't want to disappoint them. You know you really. It really makes you think twice about intake really seriously How to create the best brand of the best product experience The best way to do good you can't in the world so it's a Dow. That was something that now that I've been here for a while. It's obvious that people re Pasha could this is. This is a very personal decision to go. Help somebody but coming in. It's something I hadn't quite considered that was. That was a really fun in different challenge to come in two different set of circumstances. Let's get twitter so I'm a huge fan. I think twitter is is an incredible An incredible place. I know that there are issues with it. Of course there's issue with any platform where you're working with billion people or whatever. Three hundred million people whatever's on twitter. And I think you know from an advertising perspective. It's something that's not nearly talked about as much as facebook obviously So I'm curious what what did you. What did you do there? I was a part of the growth team that was growing the Self Service advertising platform on twitter at the time. Shout out to them by many of my friends. Still there In it's a wonderful team. And if they really felt a start up within a young company red at that point when I joined twitter had IPO year before so they weren't like they weren't a startup anymore but the self service advertising business was it was a very small very nimble team of people really wanted to crack the ability to convert regulatory users were small and medium businesses to to become advertisers on the platform whether they wanted to grow their following whether they wanted to drive traffic to a specific business or website or APP that they were developing And it was really fun because there was no playbook for it right. I mean you always pick things up from other businesses But we were really trying to do things for the first time Especially for twitter so it was just really fun to opposed to approach challenges in problems with a hundred with all the creativity you could. Yeah so it was. It was a really fun period and I learned a lot and stay in touch with many of those friends. Yeah you need A. We need some like twitter classes for all the all the folks that are are people borrowers on Kiva. They probably need those twitter tips to figure out how to market themselves better. It's definitely Bernie's improve the market growth. Right yes. So how much were people spending onto like? What was that target segment? Are they spending like twenty five bucks a year? They spending twenty five hundred bucks a year. You know it was very the time there were people who were spending fifty bucks because they wanted to get a few extra followers but but there were companies that were spending Alex. Small businesses were startups. They're only getting started. We're spending tens to hundreds of thousands of dollars a year quickly graduated in to manage. Count those different thing but it was really very which made as a as a marketer was really it was really fun challenged work right at one point. I'm working with a HOT STARTUP. That has fresh budget and trying to emulate. I want to spend all this money in one. Part of my marketing investment to go into twitter and other times was someone who writes a blog and just once again a few followers on or like they wrote a very funny tweeted. They want people to see that tweet there. They WANNA buy impressions in one by They want to They want to pay to have their their tweets. Show up and people timelines. I don't follow them right so it was sort of. It was very widened and how to think about the product experience marketing capabilities to do this at scale in in a segmented way personalized way. It was really fun. Yeah that is really fun. I remember I remember. When the first time I was seeing like promoted tweets consistently was T. MOBILE. Oh Yeah John legare whatever. He's GonNa be me now anyway. Is John La- gear? Yeah I'm probably butchering yes. How to pronounce the name but I remember his account was always Roy now. Yes like millions. Millions millions But But I did always. I always felt like and I still feel this way and a lot of listeners to the show I'm sure in the same boat where you have tons of people on twitter that our senior executives or just any buying persona that are on there that might not be super active but like leverage twitter. Like their new source right and they follow one hundred fifteen people that sit and they stay up to date on those people. Whatever it is for sports or this or that or whatever and but they're really impactful people in there and they could be buying from you and I always felt like it was underutilized because who you follow is so intent based And it was something that I just felt like and I still feel like is really underutilized. I know price comes into a lot of that. Should've miked up Dylan for this We'll give you some questions Since he's are headed growth but Yet curious like what? What did you see that advertisers? Doing a great job of or some stuff. That was really interesting that you saw novel innovative. I mean what was interesting about twitter. Is that the the immediacy of your engaging with can be such a powerful signal totally right and that's what really sets it apart in all these all the networks have something that sets them apart right if you google for if.

I write the article about silver, Diomede fluoride and glass, I honor and they put a banner for kiva on the top. I didn't put that banner there.

It's useful for whatever percentage of the audience doesn't get what we're doing in so much as I think having explicit character is. As a benefit is have you noticed that it's sort of like it's clear to what you're trying to say when it is a character that is they have names, and you can point to them. You have backstory like that probably. I mean it definitely clarifies that it's not specifically us whereas you might be like, why are they saying that if it was a saying certain things? I mean, we feel like we've only done like three or four songs where it's truly supposed to be us, and even then the joke is generally how much we suck. And it's still not we're making up lies within like it's not true. You're saying the story about us having a four way with an alien didn't happen. That was that's real. That's our words story. It's about as much as I assume like Larry. David is in curb your enthusiasm, or like me and REBA exactly that That one. one that was all too real. When I first saw the songs that cluster. I remember again, from when I first interviewed kiva, you said you guys like making fun of posturing pretending to be cool, and tough and masculine in that way. How are the bash brother sort of perfect, muses for your style? You just said it basically, they definitely embodied that eighties vibe. That is both. Really fun and entertaining, to watch and behold. But also has more and more and more become clearly problematic. But that's also not even specifically them that we could have been any sports star from I believe. Yeah, it'd been football players or baseball players. Any other baseball player a lot of what ju like drew us doing this weird project is just those general ideas of, like, yeah. Honestly it combined with a lot of sort of realizations about stuff.

But if you're coming, let us know. And so we could start planning ahead for that. And then if we do hear from enough people, then we'll update you in the next episode and talk about what the live show. We'll ideas are potentially going to start sending ideas for that. If you have an idea, hey, this would work great for a live show. It has to be something that's it can like it can't be to visual, right? Because we also have to release it as a podcast, right? And it can't be something with, like, okay. Caitlyn Herman life. Coach. I is like we need like we would needlessly fly in Caitlyn Herman righty. That's our way to get it.

"This is a humbly experience to be at home to feel like I should be I when you know, I know in the league, I know I can play and still provide skill sets in a the ability to get things done in playmaking ability. Yes, my attitude, my beat of my drum is going to kind of tone back a little bit because I wanna be I wanna be given a chance and to get that contract, you gotta be on the team right now. He's at home training, working out, trying to get in a position to where he can get another contract. So yes, his attitude can change. I don't think we, we need his attitude to change. I think for for kiva Cleveland Browns. I bring this Brian in because I know what is track record is as far as numbers. Yes, I w-. Once your fire, won't your passion. I want all of that, but I want you to come in here understanding. You're not the number one guy. What are you already? And he knows if he would have come in and do anything else, Greg, he would become yes, so so he can't come in and have you love the idea of turning into a choirboy really is just about commonsense once you put in that spot and you know you're looking at your future ahead of you and you know what you have to do and get done, and you know what not to do. So I don't. I don't think you're asking them to change and do not be fiery and not what the no all you won't want that that you want your signing Dez Bryant, not somebody else. You wanna yelling at Baker Mayfield Gill, right Raj law Tigers stripes, rob, you know that guys don't change overnight. Greg. I applaud you for defending one of your brethren in Brian good receiver, but I'm telling you the Cleveland Browns give you a call. I've seen you in the hall down here working out you, you're a better shape and better locker room presence than Dez Bryant. Go to the locker room presence better. I'm not. I'm not trying to compete with Dez Bryant. I, I have my my cons when it comes to Dez Bryant as far as route running in different things. But as far as being a playmaker impacting that team that has not won, they won one game in two years. Like, you can't tell me this isn't a good opportunity for both sides like weaken both capitalize on this. I can get back into the league and I can try to work myself into another contract another deal and showcase that. I'm still who believe that I am in Dez Bryant rounds, which struggled like we just talked about struggled in the red zone. We got a guy who's done it been there, yes, and help us out. Open up, help open up other receivers if he's a productive. So it does work for both side hard pass. Brian. I mean ruining potential. The young guys ruining locker room.

If the Cleveland Browns really didn't want this Brian, they have someone in house that has worked with this brand on the sidelines and has had heated confrontations with him base the face in Todd, Haley.

Congo’s latest Ebola outbreak taking place in a war zone
"Start with the new and very worrying outbreak of the abode of virus in the Democratic Republic of Congo is just two weeks ago, the authorities they had to Clinton early outbreak in the west of the country to be over that success was put down to the rapid response approach device after the poorly contained epidemic in west Africa in two thousand thirteen to two thousand sixteen, but now more than two and a half thousand kilometers way in north key province near the border of Uganda, they've been thirty six deaths as we record this program, some of which have already been confirmed as Ebola. It's the same strain as before, but the outbreaks probably not actually linked the problem in dealing with it as the deputy director of emergency preparedness. Peter Salama. The World Health Organization told Claudia Hammond is this outbreak is going to be far more challenging to contain and even riskier. For the medical staff involved. The outbreak is centered around Mela beco- health zone, and particularly around us Motown cooled, men Geena. That really is the epicenter of the outbreak. We are however, receiving notifications of suspected cases that go beyond this particular healthy area and health zone. So they're being investigated in there more than thirty suspected cases currently. That this outbreak is completely separate from the one that was only declared over a couple of weeks ago. Is it because it's it's so far away across the other side of the country. We don't have definitive evidence as yet, but nor do we have any reason to believe that these outbreaks connected the distance between Ecuador, province and north keeping provinces is around two thousand five hundred kilometers. We know that this outbreak is likely to have taken off towards the end of July, and there were no active cases in the Equitor outbreak. After early Jews, how worrying is this new outbreak? This outbreak is extremely concerning in the Ecuador outbreak. I spoke of number of complicating factors, logistics affected health workers were infected early, which is, of course a ruse fan publication. The fact that the sites were much close to forested area. The fact that we have multiple sides simultaneously to address in terms of outbreak response. The fact that we also had proximity to Buddha's. So in this outbreak in northern kiva province, we have all of the above, but above and beyond. All of that here, the biggest constraint is security. There are more than one hundred groups in the North Kivu province more than twenty highly active and there is of operation really of Aleppo. Unfortunately, we've many of the areas which we're going to have to cover to reach all of the context out of the eight million population of northern kiva. One million people are internally displaced, so it's a population on the move, so that must make it much more difficult to work with communities. If you've got communities. So broken up on areas of conflict, metro difficult, much of this province is in UN security level for and what that means in practice is that many of the roads will have to travel alone who require escorts. Now, staff will require security, pistol protective equipments and not just the regular PP. We're used to using any Bill. Outbreaks to protect from infection, and we'll be relying heavily on the UN to help us with negotiations if needs be with some of the armed groups in order to access the population.
