Outbreak of Ebola in DR Congo not yet stabilized says WHO, DG

Ebola in DR Congo

World Health Organization Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus on Wednesday said it is too soon to say that the outbreak of Ebola in the Democratic Republic of Congo is stabilizing even if new cases are emerging at a slower rate. 

“There is a decline (in new cases)… but still, considering the accessibility and red zones, we cannot say that the outbreak is stabilizing,” he told a news conference.
