DRC Ebola outbreaks

On 7 February 2021, DRC declared a new outbreak of Ebola, the country’s twelfth in just over 40 years.

The latest outbreak is located in DRC’s northeast, in North Kivu province, where a previous epidemic – the country’s tenth – lasted over two years and claimed nearly 2,300 lives.

The twelfth Ebola outbreak comes only two and a half months after the end of the eleventh outbreak, in northwestern Équateur province. It is also the country’s fourth consecutive outbreak since May 2018.

MSF teams are responding to the outbreak, supporting patients and their families, plus undertaking activities including triage of people with potential Ebola cases and strengthening infection prevention and control measures.

Read about the tenth outbreak in DRC’s northeast. Read about the eleventh outbreak in Équateur province.
