Congo Ebola out­break spreads to ma­jor city

The Daily Telegraph - - World news -

The sec­ond-largest Ebola out­break in his­tory has spread to a ma­jor city in east­ern Congo, as health ex­perts worry whether the stock of an ex­per­i­men­tal vac­cine will stand up to the de­mands.

Butembo, with more than one mil­lion res­i­dents, is now re­port­ing cases of the deadly haem­or­rhagic fever. There were cur­rently 471 Ebola cases, of which 423 are con­firmed, in­clud­ing 225 con­firmed deaths, Congo’s health min­istry said.
