The Democratic Republic of Congo is in danger as it is the Ebola virus again. It is confirmed by the WHO that it is the deadly virus that has left several dead. Three people recently died in north-eastern part of the country. Ebola is a virus-like RNA similar to HIV and influenza.
In 2014 and 2015 this deadly virus killed thousands. This outbreak was confirmed from the test they did on nine people. All these haemorrhagic fever after 22nd April.
The World Health Organisation has declared that it is the new virus epidemic called Ebola. Previously, this epidemic killed several people in West Africa.
The disease that happens due to this virus spreads if people come in contact with the bodily fluids such as urine, or diarrhoea of infected person. It is virus like RNA or HIV. The last time it happened in Congo in 2014.
One thing that gives a little relief is that the disease is not airborne it doesn’t transmit through touching or breathing.
The spoke person of Eric Kabambi “It is in a very remote zone, very forested, so we are little lucky”. “We always take this very seriously.”
