Hopes dashed in DR Congo as new Ebola case reported

Just two days before the outbreak of Ebola in the Democratic Republic of Congo was to be declared over, the World Health Organization (WHO) says a new case has been confirmed.

More than 3,400 people have been infected and 2,200 have died since the outbreak was announced in eastern DR Congo nearly two years ago.

The authorities were preparing to declare the epidemic over on Sunday.

But it now has to continue fighting Ebola as well as Covid-19 and measles.
