The outbreak of Ebola caused more than 200 people to die in Congo

The National Health Service of the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) has said that more than 200 people have died so far in the outbreak of the Ebola and almost half of the victims are from 800,000 Ben's cities north of the Kivu region.

So far, the immunization program has vaccinated about 25,000 people.

However, Olli Ilonga, the Congolese Minister of Health, said that armed groups continue to persecute medical groups in the affected areas.

In September last year, Ben broke out an immunization campaign, when an armed group launched an attack in a matter of hours. The current Ebola outbreak, which began in July, is the tenth since the country has been affected since 1976.
