WHO announces new Ebola outbreak in the Democratic Republic of the Congo

| |

The director general of that organization has communicated this news.

“A new Ebola outbreak has been detected in the western Democratic Republic of the Congo, near Mbandaka, in the province of Equator“, has communicated the director general of the WHO, Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, through his Twitter account.

The head of that UN body has specified that the Ministry of Health of that African country has identified six cases Ebola, of which four had fatal consequences.

Adhanom Ghebreyesus has pointed out that this outbreak occurs while the Democratic Republic of the Congo is in the final phase from its fight against the Ebola virus in the east of the country, while fighting the covid-19 pandemic and “the world’s largest measles outbreak”.

The Democratic Republic of the Congo has been trying for almost two years end the Ebola outbreak near its eastern borders with Rwanda and Uganda, a health crisis that has cost the lives of more than 2,200 people in an area where no new cases have been detected in more than a month.
