"This is Louis Cathedral from UN news. One of the major challenges in a radical. The deadly Ebola virus in the Democratic Republic of the Congo is the threat from numerous armed armed groups preventing health teams from reaching at risk communities in an interview with you and news's Daniel Johnson. Dr Michelle from the world. Health Organization explains how the Agency Agency is deploying helicopters to remote areas as it adapts to the volatile situation. What we are doing we are trying to readjust our strategy to at least continue to who provide services because what we have to do is a difference between communities resistance acceptance? It seemed that the community want of the intervention around around. We have a group that are prevent us to reach this community so we have starts with an abridged have access to Jakarta. Since yesterday. We started vaccination where people came from these villages to receive vaccination but the ideal will be for us to actually move to. The village is to be able to have a deep assessment to see how far favor virus spread to to make sure that we continue to have a strong strong community based surveillance that can help us too early detect and also provide a full range of interventions including vaccination Berea area the contamination and overs. But how can you do this given that insecurity in these four health zones as opposed to twenty nine that we've seen affected by Ebola to date since it started last August in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. A how much can you actually achieve given that you've got limited access just one helicopter going in. What once a day? What what we did? I think we have now modern here of operation so we attorney relying on communities. Of course they cannot do some of the specialized interventions like vaccination and that is more complex but the Khandu actually safe burial for example the contamination so these interventions insult we actually shift them into community sift burial community decontamination of household as well as this system. But what would they cannot do. Is the investigation also vaccination as well as a safe referral to treatment center because when you are detected active earlier you have higher chance to survive within the treatment area. We're talking about four health zones. How big of an area is that? And how many armed groups. They're still active in that region. It's difficult to provide statistics on the group We were told by at least the aspect more than thirty Anglo operating the but they think is that this Arrow are not well stretcher. So it's difficult to see who's in charge of bitch of com are so that you can undertake efficient officiant. Discussion for access is one of the big challenges that we have but this group muscle them are embedded in the communities because for them. It was a mechanism them to protect themselves against some over. I'm group that some of them have turned into account of robots or trying to do perform some of activities against the same community so difficult to this area is quite large if we take the Bala feted area the three provinces eatery enough Kivu and south South Kivu just comparing is more than two times Boondi Wanda polls together about the full health zones that are still affected now they fall on that still affected affected is still a big to move to give an idea like one of the city and the assess is also about in terms of road is in the forest where we operating now in mining illegal moreover mining areas it take for example from Montana to Jacco one and half to reach the place yes there is the distance but also joe graphic assess with bad roads so twenty seven cases in the last week or three times the number of the previous three weeks how close are we. It's a difficult question. How close are we to closing in on the end of April or DRC in Ebola? Of course the numbers are scary but if these numbers are coming from one location and at the same if these numbers are coming from the same group of person is a good sign at least you can show that you can detect them which is the case. Mainly it's as a kiss mainly the cases that we have coming from future enough transformation so if we can control all the contract vaccinate it Them and perform all the activities including contact. Follow Up for twenty one days is a good son and the progress we cannot. This is a progress from the fact that we moved from twenty nine zone to only Falzon so we are getting closer with you. Look at the map. That was totally Ali. Read in the past. The map is maybe three quarter green. Now we have only one quarter in red. That's where we have to really put.
