GENEVA / Kampala. The life-threatening Ebola virus continues to spread in Congo, Central Africa, and neighboring countries are worried. In Uganda, 1,600 aids are being vaccinated in health centers along the border, health minister Jane Ruth Aceng said on the weekend.
Ebola's suspected cases have already been reported from southern Sudan, Uganda and even Yemen, reported the World Health Organization (WHO). But in no case, it was really an Ebola infection.
Nearly 12 million people were tested at border posts in Congo for signs of Ebola. There were 14 suspected cases in which one of the viruses had been detected.
According to the Congolese Ministry of Health, from the beginning of August to the end of October, 250 people have been infected with one another and probably 35 with the Ebola virus. 81 patients had recovered, 180 patients had died.
WHO is concerned about the growing number of congresses. WHO's chief Adhanom Ghebreyesus travels to Congo this week. He is also accompanied by the head of the UN peace mission, Jean-Pierre Lacroix. (AP)
