DRC 2018 Ebola outbreak

On 8 May 2018, Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) declared an outbreak of Ebola in the northeast.

The new outbreak, in DRC's northeastern Equateur province, is the country's ninth Ebola outbreak in 40 years. It is also the second epidemic since the end of the outbreak in West Africa in 2016. Previous outbreaks in DRC have been in remote, isolated areas, with few people infected and contained relatively quickly. In this new outbreak, cases have been confirmed in the busy port city of Mbandaka, which has more than a million inhabitants, worrying authorities about its spread in an urban area.
