In the outbreak of Ebola in the GDR, the death toll rose to 610


According to data from the Ministry of Health KDC, in the outbreak of the province of North Kivu and spreading to the province of Ituri, 82 cases of hemorrhagic fever were recorded. It was found that 16 of these people carried the Ebola virus.

A total of 610 people died in the outbreak since July 2018, and 331 people with the virus recovered completely. Currently, 75 people are receiving treatment at Ebola centers.

On the other hand, according to the data, 66 people who were not sure whether they were caused by the Ebola virus died of a bloody fire.

As part of the campaign launched on August 8, 2018, 93,613 people were vaccinated.

For the first time in 1976, Ebola caused two simultaneous outbreaks in the cities of Nazeir and Nawab in Sudan. Since the epidemic in the GDR began in a village near the Ebola River, the river was named after the river.

The Ebola virus spread in West Africa in December 2013. In 2014-2017 in Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone, 30,000 people were infected and more than 11,000 people died.
