Congo ministry says Ebola outbreak worst in nation's history

SeattlePI.com Saturday, 10 November 2018 ()
KINSHASA, Congo (AP) — Congo's latest Ebola outbreak is the worst in the country's recorded history with 319 confirmed and probable cases, the health ministry said. The deadly virus has killed about 198 people since the outbreak was declared Aug. 1 in the volatile east, the ministry said. Those dead include 163 confirmed Ebola cases, with 35 probable deaths. Nearly 100 people have survived Ebola. This is Congo's 10th outbreak since 1976, when the hemorrhagic fever was first identified in Yambuku, in the Equateur province, the ministry said. Health Minister Dr. Oly Ilunga Kalenga said late Friday that the figures now exceed that outbreak.
