A deadly Ebola outbreak in eastern Democratic Republic of Congo is deeply worrying but does not yet merit being labelled a global health emergency, says the World Health Organization.
Congo’s health ministry said on Monday that in the past week alone 33 people were confirmed with Ebola virus and 24 of them died.
Mental health disorders are on the rise in every country in the world and could cost the global economy up to $16 trillion between 2010 and 2030.
The World Health Organization (WHO) said on Tuesday that an Ebola outbreak in north eastern Democratic Republic of Congo could worsen rapidly because of attacks by armed groups, community resistance and the geographic spread of the disease.
Zimbabwe declared a cholera outbreak in the capital Harare after 20 people died from the disease and more than 2,000 were infected by drinking contaminated water, new Health Minister Obadiah Moyo said on Tuesday.
