The World Health Organisation (WHO) says cases of the deadly Ebola virus are steadily rising in the Democratic Republic of Congo.
An Ebola survivor has fallen ill with the disease for a second time in eastern Congo, the Congolese health authorities said on Sunday, saying it was not yet clear if it was a case of relapse or reinfection.
A continental forum to assist the Democratic Republic of Congo’s efforts against Ebola has attracted pledges worth $55 million, above its target.
International organizations warned on Friday of a potential resurgence of Ebola in Congo after deadly militia attacks on health centers forced aid groups to suspend operations and withdraw staff.
Three health workers were killed and several injured in attacks against two Ebola response centres in eastern Congo early on Thursday, authorities and health services said.
