Congo health ministry reports first death in Ebola outbreak

The WHO estimates that the 3-month air bridge cost to be $2.4 million.

The West African outbreak lasted for three years, infected about 28,000 people, killed 11,000 and spread out of Africa to places like the U.S. and Europe.

At least 18 people have died of suspected haemorrhagic fever in an outbreak that was first confirmed on 8 May in Bikoro health zone, a remote part of the country.

Deputy Director-General of Emergency Preparedness and Response Peter Salama said the organisation was "preparing for the worst-case scenario". The outbreak primarily hit the remote village of Ikoko Ipenge.

Similar measures helped it contain the virus during the West African epidemic that began in 2013.

The government had earlier this week announced that all visitors coming to Kenya from DRC and other Western Africa countries through different entry points will undergo intense screening. Ebola virus outbreak control depends on surveillance and the isolation of cases, according to the study. The team will also set up an active case search and contact tracing, establish Ebola treatment units to care for patients, set up mobile labs, and engage the community on safe practices.

Nigeria was declared free of Ebola in October 2014 by the World Heath Organization, after 42 days had passed since tests showed the last infected person no longer had the disease. Salama said confusion surrounding possible links between the two outbreaks may be stem from nonspecific symptoms of the disease.

It is nearly certain that we won't see a repeat of the 2014-16 West African epidemic that claimed 11,000 lives, but healthcare experts needs to act swiftly, nonetheless. "At all levels, this has been taken as the highest priority".

"WHO staff were in the team that first identified the outbreak".

The Kenyan government has come out to speak following Ebola outbreak in DRC.

"He is now in an isolation ward at Entebbe hospital". The virus killed at least 11,000 people across six countries, including a single fatality in the U.S. The global response to that crisis was criticised for moving too slowly, prompting an apology from the WHO.

"The estimated budget for the global response is $18mn for a three-month operation", the World Health Organization said at the weekend. The WHO has already released $1 million from its contingency fund, and Wellcome Trust and the United Kingdom government have pledged £3 million ($4.1 million).

In trials, the experimental Ebola vaccine rVSV-ZEBOV provided protection against the killer virus.
