The deadly Ebola virus disease is spreading out of control, and the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) is again seeing an increase in infections. This was announced by Mike Ryan, head of the World Health Organization (WHO) Health Emergencies Program, reports Reuters.
The number of infections in the African country has reached 60. WHO believes that funerals pose a particular threat: it is there that the danger of the spread of the virus is increased. Ryan noted that three new cases of infection were recorded in the DRC over the weekend. “The disease is active and uncontrollable,” he said.
At the same time, on June 25, WHO congratulated the country on the victory over the Ebola outbreak. She was told about it on June 1, an outbreak was recorded in the city of Mbandaka in the northwest of the DRC. World Health Organization Director General Tedros Adanom Ghebreyesus also confirmed this information.
