M & M / Kampala. The life-threatening Ebola virus continues to spread in the Congo in central Africa and neighboring countries are alarmed. In Uganda, 1,600 helpers are vaccinated in medical centers along the border, Health Secretary Ruth Aseng said over the weekend.
Ebola suspected that cases had already been reported from southern Sudan, Uganda and even Yemen, the World Health Organization (WHO) reported. But under no circumstances was Ebola infection really.
Nearly 12 million people were checked at Congo border crossings for signs of Ebola. There were 14 suspected cases, one of which identified the virus.
According to data from the Congolese Ministry of Health, from the beginning of August to the end of October, 250 people were infected with the disease and 35 others, apparently, with the Ebola virus. 81 patients recovered, 180 patients died.
The World Health Organization is concerned about the growing number of Congo cases. Who's boss Adhanom Ghebreyesus travels to the Congo this week. He is also accompanied by the head of the UN peace mission, Jean-Pierre Lacroix. (AP)
