DRC is Ebola-free

21 Nov, 2014

The World Health Organisation has confirmed that the Democratic Republic of Congo is Ebola-free, as 42 days have passed since the last case in an outbreak that killed at least 49 people. The DRC outbreak, which began in August, involved a different strain of Ebola from the one that has claimed more than 5400 lives in west Africa.

UN health agency:

The Democratic Republic of Congo is now considered free of Ebola transmission.
