“The Ebola outbreak in the Democratic Republic of the Congo’s (DRC’s) North Kivu district continues to grow, amid new healthcare worker infections and concerns that regional violence is making surveillance and detection challenging for international aid workers. According to an update released late yesterday by the DRC’s healthy ministry, Ebola cases now total 96 (5 new cases), with 69 confirmed. In addition, 55 people have died.  The 5 new cases and 5 newly recorded deaths are all in Mabalako health zone.”
