Ebola outbreak Congo: 419 cases as deadly disease SPREADS | World | News | Express.co.uk

Last weekend, the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) reported a further 33 cases of the highly contagious disease, bringing the total number to 419. The World Health Organisation (WHO) identified three major ebola “red zones” as Kalunguta, Katwa and Beni – all of which located in the north east of the Congo. The WHO also warned the ebola situation in the DRC remains complex and challenging, adding it was confident its partners in the area could successfully control it. And in a chilling turn, the WHO warned health centres have been identified as unknowingly spreading the disease even more through the administration of medications and injections.
