In DR Congo: Ebola Virus Killed 3 Patients

Lassa Fever Killed A Serving Corps Member in Calabar State, Nigeria

    ‘Our country must confront an outbreak of the Ebola virus that constitutes a public health crisis of international significance,’ the ministry said. Confirming the outbreak to Reuters, the WHO’s Congo spokesman, Eric Kabambi said: ‘It is in a very remote zone, very forested, so we are a little lucky. We always take this very seriously.”

Everybody thought that the catastrophic-embedded fever is no more in existence, the last outbreak record of Ebola in DR Congo was three years ago in 2014 and it killed 42 people.

If you can remember that in 2014, a Nigerian nurse, Obi Justina Ejuelonu also lost her life after attending to Patrick Sawyer, a Liberian-American Ebola carrier who brought the disease to Nigeria and also died in Lagos alongside with the virus career.
