[Perspectives] Jean-Jacques Muyembe-Tamfum: Africa’s veteran Ebola hunter

Jean-Jacques Muyembe-Tamfum has investigated ten outbreaks of Ebola and Marburg, which must be some kind of record, but were it not for a simple precaution he took during the first outbreak of Ebola, in 1976, then he may not have lived to see the others. His first encounter with Ebola came at a Belgian mission hospital in Yambuku in Equateur Province of the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC). “We heard that a lot of people were dying, even the Catholic sisters”, recalls Muyembe, who was then a young Professor of Microbiology at Kinshasa University Medical School.
