The charity Street Child says thousands of Ebola orphans are still “desperately struggling”.

During the outbreak in 2014 and 2015, some 28,616 cases have been reported in Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone, with 11,310 deaths.

There are more than 10,000 survivors of the virus, which is highly contagious.

A new case was reported last month in the Democratic Republic of the Congo.

At the height of the epidemic, around 100 British medics were trained in a mock field hospital, set up in an aircraft hangar in York.
