WHO Declares Fresh Ebola Outbreak In African Country

The World Health Organization (WHO) has declared the latest outbreak of the Ebola disease in Congo officially on Monday.

The organisation said that the outbreak affected the north-western Équateur province, with the first case recorded there on April 23.

As it stands totally, there were four confirmed cases and one suspected case; all patients died of the disease.

In a previous outbreak in the province between June and November 2020, a total of 130 cases were detected and 55 people died.

This latest outbreak was the 14th recorded in the country of 90 million since 1976.

It will be recalled that the largest-ever outbreak of the disease took place in West Africa with more than 11,000 deaths between 2014 and 2016 respectively.

Ebola infection often leads to high fever and internal bleeding, and is life-threatening.
