  • 33 reported dead in Congo Ebola outbreak	 	 	 			Ebola virus

The number of confirmed cases in Congo's new outbreak of the Ebola virus has risen to 13, including three deaths, the health ministry said late Saturday.

The latest flare-up was announced one week after Congo's government declared the end of another outbreak in northwestern Congo that is believed to have killed 33 people as well.

Containing an Ebola outbreak in a "war zone" in the Democratic Republic of Congo is among the most hard challenges the World Health Organization has faced, a top WHO official said Friday.

Thirteen Ebola cases have been confirmed since the fresh outbreak was declared on August 1 in North Kivu province.

They met with local authorities, including the Mayor of Beni, Mabalako health zone chief and other members of the community to discuss the best way to respond to the outbreak.

"WHO is deploying more than 18 experts including epidemiologists, logisticians and experts in Infection Prevention Control, risk communication, social mobilization and community engagement from Goma, Kinshasa and Mbandaka to support the Ministry of Health to stop rapidly the Ebola virus from spreading", said Dr Allarangar Yokouidé, WHO Representative in the DRC.

"This is an active conflict zone. The major barrier will be safely accessing the affected population", the World Health Organization said. There is no specific treatment, and the virus can be fatal in up to 90 percent of cases, depending on the strain. Ebola, first identified in the country in 1976, jumps to humans from animals including bats and monkeys.

In the worst outbreak of Ebola, the disease struck the West African states of Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone in 2013-15, killing more than 11,300 people. "She was buried, we believe, in an unsafe burial in terms of Ebola standards and seven deaths have occurred in her immediate family", Salama said.

Probable Ebola cases have also been registered in neighbouring Ituri province.
