Risk of Ebola’s spread from Congo now ‘very high,’ WHO says

USA TODAY Weekend Extra - - FRONT PAGE -

The risk of the deadly Ebola virus spread­ing from Congo is now “very high” after two con­firmed cases were dis­cov­ered near the Uganda bor­der, the World Health Or­ga­ni­za­tion says.

The out­break of the hem­or­rhagic fever in north­east­ern Congo is now larger than the pre­vi­ous one in the north­west and more com­pli­cated to con­tain be­cause of a dense, highly mo­bile pop­u­la­tion and a rebel threat so se­ri­ous that some health work­ers say they’re op­er­at­ing in a war zone.
