Transmits a barrier of 250 dead Ebola outbreaks in this Congo

Kinshasa, December 2 (Princess Latina) The Ebola epidemic in the northeastern part of the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) has exceeded 250 deaths since it began on August 1, the Health Ministry announced today.

With data relating to November 30, health authorities covered 434 cases of haemorrhagic fever from Ebola, of which 252 died, including 48 probable cases, which were not possible to take confirmation samples with laboratory tests.

The statistical bill for 138 cures and 83 cases are examined.

Health Minister Oli Iluga said last week that the outbreak in the provinces of North Kivu and Ituri became the second most serious in world history behind the suffering from 2013 to 2016 by three West African countries (Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea), who reported 29 thousand cases and 11 thousand 300 deaths.

Released on August 1 in the rural town of Mangin, the phenomenon remains dangerous and unpredictable in the opinion of the authorities.

According to the number of deaths, the current is behind that of 1976 in Yambuku (north of the DRC), with the condition of 318 patients and 280 deaths. It only exceeded that of 1995 in Kikit (southwest, with 315 patients and 250 deaths).
