Before 30 November 2019, will an Ebola health worker be injured or killed in an attack against an Ebola facility inside the Central African Republic, South Sudan, Uganda, Rwanda, Burundi, or Tanzania?


This question was generated from the IARPA Global Forecasting Challenge 2.

Frequent and sometimes even deadly attacks against the Ebola response efforts in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) threaten successful containment of the disease to DRC's borders (Economist, AlJazeera, Vox, France24). Some high risk countries bordering DRC, for example Uganda, have instituted preparedness responses (WHO).

Note: This question concerns the countries neighboring the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) and not the DRC itself.
