Ebola epidemic declared in northeast DR Congo, 3 dead - WHO




An Ebola outbreak has been declared in northeast Democratic Republic of Congo, the World Health Organization said Friday.   

The virus caused three deaths in the area since April 22.

The WHO said the outbreak affects an equatorial forest region in Bas-Uele province, bordering Central African Republic. 

The last Ebola outbreak in Congo in 2014 was quickly contained and killed 49 people according to official figures.


"It (the case) is in a very remote zone, very forested, so we are a little lucky.

"We always take this very seriously," said spokesman Eric Kabambi.
