Robert Redfield, MD, director for the CDC, said November 5 that if the conflict in the Democratic Republic of Congo's Ebola outbreak becomes more serious, global public health experts should consider the possibility it can't be brought under control, according to The Washington Post.

In recent months Ebola cases have been confirmed near the heavily traveled border between Uganda and Congo, where an outbreak in that country's northeast has killed 189 people.

Earlier this month, the health ministry said it will install health checkpoints at the entrances to all polling stations in Congo's Ebola-affected region during the December presidential election, when millions of Congolese are expected to come out to vote.

More deaths have been recorded in the Ebola outbreak in the eastern Democratic Republic of Congo, claiming more than 180 lives.

Besides militia attacks that have hindered health workers, the region's high population density and movements across the borders to Uganda and Rwanda pose additional risks that the highly lethal fever disease could spread in the region.

The vaccine, although subject to more scientific research and is still not yet licensed, is "being used on a compassionate basis, to protect persons at highest risk of the Ebola outbreak", the statement said.

The Ebola virus is spread through the fluids of infected people. Since 2014, about 2,000 people have been killed in clashes between armed groups.
