Ebola virus infects 300 people in eastern Congo

WHO Director Will Visit Congolese Areas Affected by Ebola

Uganda has started vaccinating health workers against Ebola in a border district near the outbreak in Congo, where the highly infectious viral disease has killed 189 people.

After entering the body, it kills cells, making some of them explode, it wrecks the immune system, causes heavy bleeding inside the body, and damages nearly every organ, though it is scary, but it's also rare.

It is expected that the World Health Organization delegation, also composed of the Deputy Secretary General of the UN Jean-Pierre Lacroix, will meet with the authorities in Kinshasa, the first to respond to the outbreak, and with the UN Office, its staff and its humanitarian partners.

More deaths have been recorded in the Ebola outbreak in the eastern Democratic Republic of Congo, claiming more than 180 lives.

The vaccination programme launches on Wednesday with support from the World Health Organization, targeting 2,000 frontline workers in districts close to DRC's North Kivu province, which is now experiencing an outbreak of the deadly virus.

Michigan Proposals 2 and 3 have passed
Within a residence, adults will be permitted to grow up to twelve marijuana plants and/or possess up to ten ounces of marijuana. Violations of the law would result in civil infractions or criminal charges, depending on the severity of the offense.

The current Ebola outbreak is unfolding in an active war zone with several armed groups attacking health officials, government aids and civilians.

The WHO said last month that Congo's outbreak does not yet warrant being declared a global emergency but called for an "intensified" response.

Investigators believe that the first victim of Ebola in any outbreak acquires the virus after coming into contact with a "reservoir" animal, say an infected bat or monkey.

"The virus has killed 186 people in the North Kivu and Ituri regions, while 88 others have been cured, " the ministry said on Monday.
