Ebola virus disease – Democratic Republic of the Congo Disease outbreak news: Update 3 October 2019

World Health Organization WHO, (2019)


The Ebola virus disease (EVD) outbreak in the Democratic Republic of the Congo continues this week with 29 new confirmed cases reported in North Kivu and Ituri provinces from [18-24 Sep 2019] versus 57 in the previous week. This decrease in the number of cases should be interpreted with caution, as operational and security challenges in certain health zones make it difficult to undertake case detection and response functions. There has been a recent increase in localized security or community-related incidents in several areas of operation. About 1/3 of community incidents from August 2019, to date, occurred in Mambasa health zone. To strengthen the participation and engagement of local communities in this area, a WHO team of social scientists and community engagement, risk communication, and health promotion experts was set up to implement the Strategic Response Plan 4 (SRP4) approach and strategy together with La Commission Communication de Risque et Engagement Communautaire (CREC) sub-commission. The recent major security incident in Lwemba, within Mandima health zone, has halted response activities for the past 9 days. This has limited contact tracing efforts, with 169 and 162 contacts lost to follow up in Lwemba and Mambasa, respectively.
