NEW Democratic Republic of Congo: Ebola Virus Disease - External Situation Report 14

World Health Organization (WHO), (2018)


The Ministry of Health and WHO continue to closely monitor the outbreak of Ebola virus disease (EVD) in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. On 27 June 2018, all the people who were exposed to the last confirmed EVD case-patient completed their mandatory 21-day follow up without developing symptoms. This is an important milestone.
The last confirmed EVD case in Equateur Province was cured and discharged from the Ebola treatment centre (ETC), following two negative tests on serial laboratory specimens, on 12 June 2018. The response is now focused on intensive surveillance, including active case finding and investigation of suspected cases and alerts.

L’impact socio-économique de la maladie à virus Ebola en Guinée, au Libéria et en Sierra Leone: Notes d’orientation n° 1 à 5, Vol. 1

PNUD, (2014)


La maladie à virus Ebola représente désormais un défi complexe pour le développement en Guinée, au Libéria et en Sierra Leone. En huit mois, la flambée actuelle a entraîné plus de cas de contamination et de décès que toutes les épidémies précédentes combinées. Dans les pays touchés, l’insuffisance des capacités, la faiblesse des ressources humaines, la carence des systèmes de santé couplées à des flux migratoires incontrôlés, au manque de cohésion sociale et à la persistance de certaines croyances et pratiques traditionnelles sont autant de facteurs concomitants qui ont contribué à la propagation de l’épidémie.
