This is followed by vomiting, diarrhea, and in some cases internal and external bleeding. There is a risk of death from excessive bleeding. In humans, it is due to direct contact with infectious animals such as chimpanzees, bats and deer. source
New Ebola outbreak in Congo, already killed by measles and coronavirus
Five people have died in Mandaka, a western city 750 miles from another Ebola outbreak in the country. It is unclear how the disease emerged in the city during the lockdown.
A fresh outbreak of the deadly Ebola virus has increased in the Democratic Republic of Congo, a country that was already battling the world’s largest measles epidemic as well as coronovirus.
The Congo’s health ministry said the new Ebola outbreak has killed four people, and at least two more have been infected in Mandabaka, a city of 1.2 million people in the western part of the country. According to UNICEF, the UN agency for children, a fifth person died on Monday.
Less than two months ago, the Congo was about to declare the official end of an Ebola epidemic in the eastern part of the country, which lasted nearly two years and killed more than 2,275 people. Then, with only two days to go, a new case was found, and the outbreak could not be declared over. But officials say it is in its final stages.
It is unclear how the Vandit outbreak at the eastern end of the country originated in Ambola, Mandaka, about 750 miles west. Congo (formerly known as Zaire) is the largest country in sub-Saharan Africa, and has been under travel restrictions to prevent the spread of coronaviruses.
