Congo Records 2nd Ebola Death Amid COVID-19 Outbreak

Ebola again????????

The Democratic Republic of Congo has recorded a second Ebola death in days following more than seven weeks without a new case, the World Health Organisation (WHO) said on Sunday.

Congo had been due, on Sunday, to mark an end to the second-deadliest outbreak of the virus on record, until a case was confirmed on Friday in the eastern city of Beni.

The outbreak has killed more than 2,200 people since August 2018 in an area of the country where militia violence hobbled efforts to contain it.

Boubacar Diallo, Deputy Incident Manager for the WHO’s Ebola response said the latest victim was an 11-month-old baby, who was treated at the same health centre as the previous case, a 26-year-old electrician.

Officials say it is not yet clear how the electrician contracted Ebola given that he had no known contacts with other Ebola patients and was not a survivor of the virus which could have relapsed.

”The WHO has identified 215 people who came into contact with the electrician, including 53 health workers at three facilities the man visited before he died.

”All but one of the health workers had already been vaccinated.
”Two new vaccines have helped contain the virus, though public mistrust and militia attacks prevented health workers from reaching some hard-hit areas.

  5. Theres something about this Congo & Ebola. It keeps appearing and reappearing there. God have mercy o

  6. "...Pestilences in divers places..." can someone read Luke 21:11 again.
    And Psalms 49:5
    Jesus is coming.

  7. Treat and re-infect. This doesn’t sound normal. How can they not record in seven weeks and suddenly they start recording. All these Greek gifts most of these countries are recovering from the foreigners. Like they don’t want there to be an end to some of these pandemic ravaging the countries.

    I am sure if this Ebola was a western disease, they would have a vaccine for it by now.

  8. Na wa for Congo o. If no be war, na Ebola, if no be Ebola na coro. If no be coro, na bad government.

  9. Public mistrust..probably one religious miscreant has told them not to take d ebola vaccine.

  10. This one nah die.

  11. Stella, it has killed 198 in Nigeria already. Nobody is talking about that.

  12. Double wahala. It is well oo

  13. No. Not again. Not now nor ever again. Covid19 is already doing much damage.

  14. There is a vaccine for ebola.
