DRC Ebola outbreaks

On 1 June 2020, DRC declared an Ebola outbreak in northwestern Equateur province, making it the country's eleventh in just over 40 years.

The eleventh outbreak comes as the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) declared a previous long-running outbreak of Ebola over in the country’s northeast, with cases first detected in August 2018.

That outbreak, in DRC's northeastern North Kivu, South Kivu and Ituri provinces, was the country's second outbreak that started in 2018 and the country's tenth Ebola outbreak in 40 years. Before it was declared over on 25 June 2020, the outbreak recorded 3,470 people infected and claimed nearly 2,300 lives. It is the biggest outbreak ever in DRC, and the second-biggest ever.

The new eleventh outbreak is the fourth epidemic since the end of the outbreak in West Africa in 2016 – and is the second epidemic in Équateur province in less than two years. The previous outbreak in Équateur province, between May and August 2018, which affected the city of Mbandaka, included 38 confirmed cases of Ebola and claimed 14 lives.
