The Ebola Outbreak in the Democratic Republic of the Congo Spreads to Another City

“An outbreak of the Ebola virus that has killed more than 80 people in the Democratic Republic of the Congo has spread to a major city, the Hill reports. The epidemic has intensified mainly in villages, but health officials on Wednesday confirmed one death from the virus in Butembo, a trading hub with a large population, which could hinder efforts to stem the outbreak, officials told Reuters. Peter Salama, the World Health Organization’s deputy director-general of emergency operations, reported the death in Butembo on Twitter, and noted the risk of further spread of the disease.”
