Ebola epidemic in Eastern DRC has already died 181 – Current Events


In the previous update, WHO, on October 28, with the Ministry of Health of the Republic of Congo, most people died as a result of the infection in the northern Kivu and Ituri states.

The recordings continue to show an upward trend in Ebola deaths in DR Congo, between 35-44 in males and between 15 and 24 years of age in females.

On October 7, statistics dies 115, and in the 15th of the same month, the number rose to 139th and 155th a week later.

More than 250 confirmed cases

On Thursday, the number of cases of contamination with the Ebola virus was also confirmed by 257 and rose to 28 possible 287.

This outbreak was observed in Mangina, in the North-Kivu and Ituri provinces, spreading across the border to Uganda, which is the armed group of the ADF, which multiplies attacks on civilians and complicates the health response.

In the past months, the UN has worried the risk of spreading outbreaks of disease to Burundi, Uganda, Rwanda and South Sudan, and last week's Security Council resolution, and has urged these African countries to strengthen their operational capacity to combat disease.

After the first appearance of the virus in 1976, RDCongo was shot nine times by Ebola, which was transmitted through physical contact through infected body fluids and caused hemorrhagic fever.
