U.N.: Ebola arrival in east DRC poses severe risks

In June, 3 cases of Ebola were detected in Uganda among members of a family who had recently attended a funeral in the DRC.

A survey carried out by researchers from Harvard University earlier this year showed that one in four people in the worst affected areas thought the virus was fake and a third thought the outbreak was fabricated for either financial gain or to destabilise the region. But, he added, "I call on the population of the city of Goma and its outskirts to keep calm. We have better public health tools than ever to respond to Ebola, including an effective vaccine", said Dr. Tedros.

The World Health Organization's emergencies chief, Mike Ryan, said Canada had contributed $750,000 directly to the WHO effort, but had also donated to other agencies.

As such, he has announced the decision to reconvene the WHO Emergency Committee as soon as possible to re-evaluate the threat level of the outbreak.

On Sunday, a pastor bearing symptoms arrived by bus in Goma, the capital of North Kivu province, and was confirmed as carrying the virus.

According to WHO, nearly 3,000 health workers have so far been vaccinated against the disease in Goma.

The health ministry said in a statement: "Due to the speed with which the patient has been identified and isolated, as well as the identification of all passengers from Butembo, the risk of spreading to the rest of the city of Goma remains low". Yves Levy as special envoy for the struggle against Ebola outbreak in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC).

He was being driven from Goma to a clinic in Butembo on Monday to receive treatment when he died, North Kivu province's governor, Carly Nzanzu, said.

At the event yesterday, the International Development Secretary expressed his deepest condolences following the death of two Congolese Ebola health workers over the weekend.

The latest epidemic is the second deadliest on record globally, after the outbreak that struck West Africa in 2014-2016, killing more than 11,300 people. However, no one they came into contact with fell ill during the 21-day incubation period after the exposure. While the United States certainly can not solve this problem alone, we must rally the worldwide community to fight this disease that knows no borders.

From the start of this outbreak, the United Kingdom government has consistently supported the government of the DRC, the World Health Organisation (WHO), the wider UN and NGOs to stop the spread of this disease, providing financial, technical and political backing. "We need the global community to step up and stop this outbreak from escalating". A big enough barrier on their own, together they make containing this outbreak in the DRC harder and more complex than the last outbreak in Liberia, Sierra Leone, and Guinea.
