The World Health Organization reported a new incidence of Ebola in Uganda on Wednesday,fueling concerns that the virus may be spreading beyond Democratic Republic of Congo, as an expert panel weighs whether to sound the alarm internationally.
The first patient to be diagnosed with Ebola in the eastern DR Congo city of Goma has died, the governor of North Kivu province said on Tuesday.
A confirmed Ebola case in the key Democratic Republic of Congo city of Goma is a “potential game-changer” in the epidemic that will be assessed by a WHO emergency response board, the UN said Monday.
The first case of Ebola has been confirmed in Goma, now the biggest city to have been affected by the disease since its outbreak in eastern DR Congo last August, the health ministry said on Sunday
The Democratic Republic of Congo will not permit the use of further experimental vaccines as it combats an Ebola outbreak because doing so risked “confusing the population,” the government said on Friday.
