The Health Minister of the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), Felix Kabange
Numbi, said a three-month Ebola outbreak in the country has ended after claiming at least 49 lives.
Mr. Felix Kabange Numbi said no new cases had been registered since October 4. However, he warned that the end of the epidemic does not mean the DRC was completely out of danger. Like every other nation, the DRC remains threatened by the possible import of the Ebola virus disease raging in West Africa.
The deadly disease took hold of the Equateur province in northwest Congo in August.
Ebola was first discovered near the Ebola river in 1976 in Zaire, which is now the DRC. There have been sporadic outbreaks in that country ever since.
The World Health Organization confirmed that the number of deaths caused by the Ebola virus has reached over 5,100 with more than 14,100 cases of infection./.
