MoH assures Rwandans following Ebola outbreak

WHO gets approval to use Ebola vaccine in DRC 19 Dead, 39 Sick in New Outbreak: Death Rate at 50 Percent

He said World Health Organization has an agreement with DRC including all the necessary registration and import permits. Health officials traveled there after Congo's Equateur provincial health ministry on May 3 alerted them to 17 deaths from a hemorrhagic fever.

Health workers dance as they try to cheer up an Ebola patient at Kenama treatment centre run by the Red cross Society on November 15, 2014 in Sierra Leon. "We already have three separate locations that are reporting cases", said the WHO's deputy director-general for emergency preparedness and response, Peter Salama.

DRC has seen 18 deaths over the past five weeks, but Congolese authorities together with the World Health Organization (WHO) and other worldwide groups have now mobilized staff and resources to contain the virus. About 4,000 doses will be sent to the remote north-western province of equator.

"The start date of the vaccinations will depend on this deployment", Moeti added.

Congo has experienced several deadly Ebola outbreaks since the virus was first identified in the country in 1976.

The organisation will administer the vaccination to healthcare workers and anyone else who has been potentially exposed to Ebola. Weller cited an Ebola outbreak nearly a year ago in the DRC that was contained quickly contained. 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. Also known as V920, the experimental vaccine showed astounding results following a first round of human trials in late 2016, after being fast-tracked due to the severity of the West Africa outbreak.

DRC is recording the latest cases of the virus after over a year since the outbreak killed four people.

The unlicensed vaccine, manufactured by Merck, could be used as early as next Monday, according to Reuters.

World Health Organization chief Tedros had led a delegation to the affected region on Sunday.

WHO is working with Congo's government and other global organizations, including Medecins Sans Frontieres, to strengthen coordination to fight and contain the Ebola outbreak.

In Bikoro, Iboko, and Mbandaka health zones, the Ministry of Health along with WHO and partners are engaged in strengthening surveillance for new cases, carrying out contact tracing, case management, and community engagement, ensuring safe and dignified burials, and coordinating the response.
