Kinshasa (AP) – In Congo, since the epidemic of Ebola about two months ago, 201 people died as a result of the disease. So far, the Ebola virus has been confirmed in 291 cases, says the Congolese Ministry of Health. More than 28,000 people were vaccinated against this disease. The latest epidemic focuses on the city of Beni and its surroundings in the province of North Kivu. There are several militia and rebel groups that prevent helpers from quickly visiting patients, from insulating and contacting their relatives.
