WHO says person infected with Ebola in Congo has died

The World Health Organisation (WHO) on Friday said that a person infected with the Ebola virus in Democratic Republic of Congo has died.

A spokesperson for the UN’s WHO Eric Kabambi, told Reuters: “It (the case) is in a very remote zone, very forested, so we are a little lucky.

“We always take this very seriously”.

The last outbreak of Ebola in Congo was in 2014 and dozens of people died.
