Death toll from DR Congo Ebola outbreak passes 200

Work is going on to expand the facility as the cases keep coming

The ministry pointed out that the current outbreak of Ebola is the most hard the world ever faced as the response measures faced problems over the unstable security situation in the disease-hit region.

The ministry said late Friday that the deadly virus has killed about 198 people since the outbreak was declared August 1 in the volatile east.

Since the outbreak began in August, 191 people have died, about half of them in Beni, a city of 800,000 people at the epicentre of the outbreak, the World Health Organization said in a statement with the UN's Department of Peacekeeping.

"Two of our colleagues in the Rapid Response Medical Unit have even lost their lives in an attack", he added.

The virus is spread via small amounts of bodily fluid and infection often proves fatal as it is spreading in the northeastern region of North Kivu also, which is home to a clutch of armed groups.

The United States is anxious about the outbreak of Ebola in conflict-hit eastern Congo where there are 312 confirmed and probable cases and 191 deaths, a USAID official said on Thursday.

Ebola is named after the DR Congo's Ebola River, near which the virus was discovered by a team of Professor Peter Piot in 1976.

But the medical response has been complicated by regular attacks by armed groups battling for control in the mineral-rich eastern parts of the country. He said no other epidemic has been as complex.

With over 300 cases the epidemic also ranks as third worst in the history of the continent, following the 2013-2016 outbreak in West Africa where over 28,000 cases were confirmed and an outbreak in Uganda in 2000 involving 425 cases. So we hold the operation. "And the other, the second problem, is that more cases are generated because we can't vaccinate them", he said.

The World Health Organization's committee has said that the outbreak did not yet constitute a public health emergency of global concern.
