BREAKING: New Ebola OUTBREAK causes fatalities as disease enters ‘NEW PHASE’

A NEW case of the deadly virus Ebola has been detected in city of Mbandaka in the Democratic Republic of Congo, a city in the north-west of the country with a population of around 1 million people.

The country’s Health Minister Oly Ilunga Kalenga stated late on Wednesday that the nation’s Ebola outbreak had now entered a “new phase”.

The latest outbreak is believed to have killed 23people so far in the country.

The World Health Organisation (WHO), which is deploying vaccines to the country, previously expressed its concerns of the disease reaching the city of Mbandaka.
They stated that this would make the outbreak harder to tackle.

The Ministry of Health announced on Wednesday thousands of doses of experimental Ebola vaccines had arrived in the DRC’s capital on Kinshasa.

The ministry’s spokeswoman Jessica Llunga said 4,000 doses are being sent to the remote north-west region of the country where two cases of Ebola have been confirmed, along with 20 probable and 20 suspected cases.

The WHO stated an additional 4,000 does will be sent to the country in the coming days, with more available if required.

Journalist Debora Patta commented on the outbreak, stating: “The most important thing is to stop the spread of the disease, and to that end, what they have to do is track down everybody; people who have contracted Ebola or even died from Ebola.”
