Aram… what’s the latest?
Semin… Congo’s health ministry on Tuesday confirmed two cases of Ebola in the central African country.
They come nearly ten months after the end of an earlier outbreak.
The ministry said two out of five samples from patients in Bikoro in the northwest came back positive after laboratory testing.
The tests were carried out after 21 patients displayed signs of hemorrhagic fever in the area.
At least 17 deaths in the region over the past five weeks are suspected to be linked to the outbreak, but have not been confirmed as Ebola cases.
The ministry has described the fresh outbreak as a public health emergency with international impact.
However, it said that since the notification of the cases on May 3rd, no deaths have been reported among those hospitalized or among health personnel.
The World Health Organization will be giving one million U.S. dollars to Congo and will send a team of experts to Bikoro on Wednesday to help contain the virus.
Ebola is contracted through bodily fluids and can cause multiple organ failures.
