WHO expects more Ebola cases in Congo

geneva - The World Health Organization (WHO) is not sure that all people who may have become infected with the deadly Ebola virus in the northeast of the Congo have been identified. This has to do with the war situation in parts of the province of Kivu. Rescuers have not been able to reach some dangerous places.

The WHO says that so far five hundred people have been vaccinated. Since the last outbreak, 78 proven and suspected cases of infection have been recorded, including 44 patients who have died. The medical teams have identified about 1500 people who have had contact with Ebola victims.

Spokesman Tarik Jasarevic told Friday not to know if all infection chains have been mapped. The virus can therefore have been transferred in an unknown line. That is why he expects an increase in the number of cases of infection and illness.
