World Health Organization ready to deploy Ebola vaccines to DRC

Seventeen people in northwest Democratic

Yet exactly why the DRC is hit so often remains an unanswered question.

About Ebola Ebola disease is a viral hemorrhagic fever caused by Ebola virus.

Most of the country's outbreaks burn out quickly because they occur in relatively remote areas-but each has had a high fatality rate. Ebola virus outbreak control depends on surveillance and the isolation of cases, according to the study.

The Ministry of Health in the Democratic Republic of the Congo deployed Rapid Response Teams to investigate cases and deaths reported in Bikoro health zone in the Equateur province.

As the World Health Organization's (WHO) declared a new Ebola outbreak in the Kongo on Tuesday, researchers from the University of Kent announced their findings that mass vaccination is not a viable option to prevent or contain Ebola outbreaks.

This could have a benefit since it could slow down the spread of Ebola, but it also greatly complicates the response. Healthcare workers are among those reported to be infected.

Nigeria was hailed as having contained the virus in 2014, with 8 deaths, following fears that it could spread through the commercial capital of some 20 million inhabitants and across Africa's most populous country of around 180 million people.

Ebola experts have various suspicions about why the DRC remains so vulnerable. Nine other cases of Ebola sick people have also been registered.

"Once Ebola gets into urban areas, especially poor urban slums, it's extremely hard to get rid of the disease". This comes less than a year since the country's last Ebola outbreak.

"And we know the number of suspected probable and confirmed cases is significant".

"Even though this is a remote rural area, which normally gives us a sense of reassurance in terms of the spread of an outbreak, the problem here is that we already have three separate locations covering as much as 60 km and maybe more". These were sent to Institute National de Recherche Biomédicale in Kinshasa on 7 May 2018, where the two samples from Ikoko-Impenge were found positive by reverse transcriptase polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) assay for Ebola virus on the same day.

"However, we will still be doing screening of visitors particularly those from West Africa", Balala said.

"After contact, the nurses began showing signs", Ngaleto told Reuters by telephone. Humans usually get infected from eating and preparing bush meat - mainly deer and monkey - and once they are infected, they can easily pass on the infection to other people.
