The Red Cross has confirmed that more than $5million of aid money was lost to fraud and corruption during the Ebola epidemic in West Africa.

According to BBC News, auditors found overpriced supplies, salaries for non-existent aid workers and fake customs bills.

The disease, which raged between 2014 and 2016, claimed at least 10,000 lives.

It required a massive humanitarian operation costing hundreds of millions of dollars to bring it under control.
