DRC 2018 Ebola outbreaks

On 1 August 2018, Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) declared an outbreak of Ebola in the northeast, the second outbreak of the disease in the country this year.

The latest outbreak, in DRC's northeastern North Kivu province, is the country's tenth Ebola outbreak in 40 years. With more than 300 cases now recorded it is the country's largest-ever known Ebola outbreak. It is also the third epidemic since the end of the outbreak in West Africa in 2016 – and comes less than one month since the previous outbreak, in nearby Equateur province, was declared over. The previous outbreak, which affected the city of Mbandaka, included 38 confirmed cases of Ebola and claimed 14 lives.

What's it like treating Ebola in a conflict zone?

Charlotte Nouette-Delorme takes us through the critical pillars of response to an Ebola outbreak, and the good news that we now have five developmental treatments and a vaccine we can use - but also the challenges of treating Ebola in an area known for high levels of insecurity and conflict.
