19 dead, 39 infected in Congo Ebola outbreak

WHO preparing for the worst in DR Congo Ebola outbreak

"Over the weekend, the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) reported seven more suspected cases of Ebola, raising the totals from April 4 through May 13 to 39 confirmed, suspected, and probable cases, including 19 deaths, for a case-fatality rate of 49 percent".

"We have agreement, registration, plus import permit — everything formally agreed already".

Punch reports that 4,000 doses of Ebola vaccine would be sent to DRC by World Health Organization in the nearest furture.

Ebola virus disease (formerly known as Ebola haemorrhagic fever) is a severe, often fatal illness, with a death rate of up to 90% caused by Ebola virus, a member of the filovirus family.

The Ministry's spokesperson Jessica Ilunga said this on Tuesday.

Mobile laboratories were deployed to Mbandaka and Bikoro on Saturday, she said, adding that results from the first 12 samples tested with that method should be available tomorrow.

Gashumba revealed there is a constant screening system at Kigali International Airport to track the outbreak from people coming from overseas to make sure the disease does not spread in the country while more operations are intensively being done on the country's borders.

The CDC advised people to avoid non-essential travel to the DR Congo, saying if they must travel, they should avoid coming into contact with living or dead wild animals, eating wild animal meat and visiting Ebola patients.

The new experimental vaccine, developed by the Canadian government and now licensed to the USA -based Merck and has been shown to be highly effective against the virus.

Samples from two suspect cases in the Wangata health zone in Mbandaka are being analyzed, the ministry said in a statement emailed from the capital, Kinshasa, late Monday.

WHO is working with Congo's government and other worldwide organizations, including Medecins Sans Frontieres, to strengthen coordination to fight and contain the Ebola outbreak.
