Health officials reported one new confirmed case of Ebola Virus Disease (EVD) in a village at the shores of Lake Albert at the border to Uganda.

This new confirmed case has been in contact with EVD in the city of Béni. Avoiding medical follow-up including vaccination in Béni, the person fled to Kasenye village in the Tshomia health zone close to Bunia city in Ituri province.



With this new EVD case, there are now eight health districts in the DRC that are affected by the current Ebola outbreak in North Kivu and Ituri provinces. This latest confirmed case is almost 200 km away from the nearest other case.

Today, the Uganda Ministry of Health informed their public that there is no confirmed case in the country.

The latest numbers from the Democratic Republic of the Congo Ministry of Health shows a total of 147 cases of hemorrhagic fever were reported in the region, of which 116 were confirmed and 31 were probable.

Of the 116 confirmed, 68 died and 39 were cured.
