Ebola: WHO Director General Arrives Kinshasa To Assess Needs For Curtailment

This comes days after the first confirmed death in the Democratic Republic of Congo which also has 11 known sufferers (a health worker

The World Health Organization (WHO) has made $1 million (842,000 euros) available to stop the virus from spreading to other provinces and countries, a representative of the UN's humanitarian affairs agency OCHA told reporters.

Four more cases of Ebola have been detected in northwest Democratic Republic of Congo, doctors said Thursday, two days after DRC reported a fresh outbreak of the disease.

In a statement released on Sunday, WHO announced that they will be providing resources to the area in order to combat the virus. The infected include three health care workers. "All is ready now to really use it", he said, adding that the Congolese government deserved praise for its response to the outbreak.

The Ebola vaccine being provided - called rVSV-ZEBOV - is an experimental vaccine that has been shown to be safe in humans and highly effective against the Ebola virus, according to the WHO.

"However, early signs including the infection of three health workers, the geographical extent of the outbreak, the proximity to transport routes and population centres, and the number of suspected cases indicate that stopping this outbreak will be a serious challenge".

The Democratic Republic of Congo and United Nations agencies said on Sunday they began deploying emergency teams of specialists over the weekend to try to prevent the spread of an Ebola epidemic suspected to have infected more than 30 people. Although not confirmed, the disease is thought to be carried in fruit bats and can be transmitted through blood or bodily fluids between wild animals and humans.

Hayek said Weinstein specifically contested her claim and that of Lupita Nyong'o because they're women of color. It is a proven fact unfortunately. "We should have come together, because that's what's made a difference".

The disease first appeared simultaneously in South Sudan and the DRC in 1976. It struck northern Equateur in 2014, killing 49 people in cases unrelated to the epidemic in West Africa that year in which more than 11,000 people died.

"This is an experimental vaccine, not a licensed product, and there are a lot of complications", including ensuring it's stored at the correct temperature, Salama said.

The DRC has reported 39 suspected, probable or confirmed cases of Ebola between 4 April and 13 May, including 19 deaths. The WHO has put Congo's nine neighboring countries on high alert, especially the Republic of Congo and the Central African Republic due to their connected river systems.
