As of Friday, 34 Ebola cases have been reported in the area in the past five weeks, including two confirmed, 18 probable (deceased) and 14 suspected cases. On July 2, 2017 the World Health Organization declared the end of the most recent outbreak of Ebola in DRC, in which a total of four people died.

The WHO has deployed 50 public health experts to support the health ministry of the DRC with response activities. It will also be determining supply needs and help fill gaps and has alerted neighbouring countries.

The signs and symptoms of Ebola diseases include fever, severe headache, joint and muscle pain, diarrhoea, vomiting, abdominal pain. The virus is transmitted to people from wild animals and spreads in the human population through human-to-human transmission. Case fatality rates have varied from 25 to 90 percent in past outbreaks. The virus can also spread to people through direct contact with the blood, body fluids, and tissues of infected fruit bats or primates. The 2014-2016 outbreak in West Africa involved major urban areas as well as rural ones.

The worst-ever Ebola outbreak started in December 2013 in southern Guinea before spreading to two neighbouring west African countries, Liberia and Sierra Leone, killing more than 11 300 people out of almost 29,000 registered cases.
