FG Step Up Efforts Over Fresh Ebola Outbreak

Deadly Outbreak Reported in 11th Largest Country in the World: 17 Dead, More Sickened

Deadly Outbreak Reported in 11th Largest Country in the World: 17 Dead, More Sickened

The first death in the current Ebola outbreak facing the Democratic Republic of Congo has been reported.

A new outbreak of the deadly Ebola disease has been declared in the Democratic Republic of Congo.

A total of 250,000 USA dollars has been set aside for outbreak response activities, and more resources are being mobilized, the statement said.

Seven people with a hemorrhagic fever, including two confirmed cases of Ebola, were hospitalized in Bikoro as of Thursday, according to Health Minister Oly Ilunga.

Nigeria recorded its first case of Ebola in 2014 after a government official named Patrick Sawyer, who had been infected with the virus from Liberia, collapsed on arrival at the airport in country's biggest city, catching health authorities unawares.

The Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) has said the Federal Government has stepped up efforts at major worldwide airports in the county to combat the spread of the Ebola Virus Disease (EVD).

Another is a woman from Ikoko Impenge, the epicentre of the outbreak some 30km from Bikoro, he said.

Bikoro health zone has a population of around 163 000 people with three hospitals and 19 health centres covering the population, most with limited functionality.

"After contact, the nurses began showing signs", Ngaleto told Reuters by telephone. A majority of the cases of Ebola have been recorded around the village of Ikoko Impenge.

In December 2016, trials of an Ebola vaccine, with funders including Wellcome, DFID and the Norwegian Government, confirmed it provides a high level of protection against a strain of the deadly disease.

"We have isolated the patients".

Congo's long experience of Ebola and its remote geography mean outbreaks are often localised and relatively easy to isolate.

Some African carriers including: Cronos Airlines, Air Cote D' Ivoire, Asky Airlines, African World Airlines, Rwanda Air, Kenyan Airlines, Ethiopian Airlines and South African Airways operate flights into their operational hubs that link Democratic Republic of Congo.

Nigeria's immigration service said on Thursday it had increased screening tests at airports and other entry points as a precautionary measure. Similar measures helped Africa's most populous country contain the virus during the West African epidemic that began in 2013.
