Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) has been hit again by an incurable illness like Ebola but has symptoms like Ebola virus.
In Boende, the spokesman for Governor’s Office,Michel Wangi has revealed the bad news to the world. The origin of the illness was unknown, and it is now a big concern to Government.
Wangi said “ Government had sent experts from National Inst!tute of Biomedical Research (INRB), led by Acting Governor Sebastian Impeto and Kabange Numbi, Health Minister, to the region to find the cause of the disease.
“Several people had died from a disease with Ebola-like symptoms, but it was not immediately clear if there was any connection with Ebola.
More than 10 people have died, including four health care workers and they all died after suffering from Ebola-like symptoms, “which include fever, diarrhoea and bleeding from the ears and nostrils.’’
Congo does not share borders with any of the countries affected by the virus in West Africa.
But the country had seen several outbreaks since the first case was detected near the Ebola River in northern Congo in 1976
