We have quarantined a priest from the diocese of Mbandaka-Bikoro who tested positive for the Ebola virus.
Katherine Overcamp of Catholic Relief Services revealed that the Fr. Lucian contracted Ebola while ‘taking care of someone who passed away.’
She added the priest is ‘responding well to treatment’, the Catholic News Service reported.
According to a World Health Organization count, over 50 cases have been identified since early April.
Below is a photo of the priest being prayed for by his Bishop in DRC, where he is currently being quarantined.
