According to UNHCR, 300,000 internally displaced persons (IDPs) are reported to have fled inter-ethnical violence in North Kivu and Ituri and nearly 20,000 people have reached Bunia with the risk that these populations be exposed to Ebola Virus Disease (EVD). UNICEF is contributing to the overall response to this humanitarian situation, jointly with partners, and leading the community engagement component of their support and assistance.
Following the confirmation of three EVD cases from the same family in Uganda since June 11th, UNICEF participated in the cross-border mission in the affected areas conducted by the Congolese and Ugandan Ministries of Health, World Health Organization (WHO) and
On June 14th, the Emergency Committee, led by WHO, expressed its deep concern about the ongoing outbreak but did not declare it as a Public Health Emergency of International Concern, partly thanks to the implementation of community engagement
The outbreak of Ebola virus disease (EVD) in North Kivu and Ituri provinces, Democratic Republic of the Congo continues this past week with a similar transmission intensity to the previous week. While the number of new cases continues to ease in former hotspots, such as Butembo, Katwa and Mandima health zones, there has been an increase in cases in Beni, and a high incidence of cases continues in parts of Mabalako Health Zone. In addition to these re-emerging hotspots, there are a large number of people with confirmed and probable infections moving to other health zones, with the greatest number coming from Beni Health Zone. The movement of cases causes the outbreak to spread to new health zones and re-emerge in health zones with previously controlled infections. Overall, this underscores the importance of robust mechanisms for listing and following up contacts and understanding the motivations for peoples’ decisions to move
The outbreak of Ebola virus disease (EVD) in North Kivu and Ituri provinces, Democratic Republic of the Congo continues this past week with a similar transmission intensity. While the number of new cases continues to easein former hotspots, such as Butembo, Katwa and Mandimahealth zones, there has been an increase in cases in Beni and a high incidence continues in parts of Mabalako Health Zone. After the first reported case in the Ariwara Health Zone on 30 June2019, no new cases have been observed in that health zone. A response team deployed to that zone continues to identify contacts, engage the community, and vaccinate individualsat risk. Response support from the bordering countries of Uganda and South Sudan continuesto support operational readiness activities. Furthermore, resources are beingput towards monitoring the Uganda-Democratic Republic of the Congo border in that area
The outbreak of Ebola virus disease (EVD) in North Kivu and Ituri provinces, Democratic Republic of the Congo continued with a steady transmission intensity this week. Indicators demonstrated the early signs of transmission easing in intensity in some major hotspots, such as Butembo and Katwa. The current hotspots are the health zones of Beni, Mabalako, and Mandima, with some cases being exported from these hotspot areas into unaffected health zones. There is a slight but notable increase in the number of new cases occurring in areas that previously had lower rates of transmission, such as the Komanda, Lubero, and Rwampara/ Bunia health zones. On 30 June, a case who had travelled overland from Beni was confirmed in Ariwara, more than 460 kilometres north of Beni, towards the borders with Uganda and South Sudan. This is the first confirmed case in this health zone, and a response team was deployed from Bunia to investigate and implement public health actions in Ariwara. Uganda and South Sudan have mobilized quickly, building on the preparedness efforts during the last months. Arua district in Uganda shares a border with Ariwara health zone, with high volume of trade and population movement. The Arua District Task Force in Arua mobilized on 2 July to agree on a plan of action, the Ministry of Health (MoH) immediately dispatched the National Rapid Response Team for needs assessment, and the vaccination team from Kasese was also dispatched to Arua district on 3 July to start vaccinating the front-line health workers.
