Geneva / Kampala. The life-threatening Ebola virus continues to spread in Congo, Central Africa, and is alarming in neighboring countries. Health care centers along the border vaccinated 1,600 assistants in Uganda, but at the weekend said health minister Jane Ruth Aceng.
Ebola suspected cases have already been reported in South Sudan, Uganda and even Yemen, the World Health Organization (WHO) reported. But under no circumstances was it an Ebola infection.
Almost 12 million people were inspected at border checkpoints in the Congo to identify Ebola signs. There were 14 suspected cases, of which one virus was detected.
According to the Congolese Ministry of Health, from the beginning of August until the end of October, 250 people are safe infected and another 35 are likely to have an Ebola virus. 81 patients recovered, 180 died.
The WHO is alarmed by the growing number of Congolese cases. WHO boss Adhanom Ghebreyesuss travels to Congo this week. He also heads the UN Peace Mission, Jean-Pierre Lacroix. (AP)
