Maladie à virus Ebola – République démocratique du Congo Bulletin d’information sur les flambées épidémiques, 24 octobre 2019

Organisation Mondiale de la Santé OMS, (2019)


Le nombre de cas confirmés de maladie à virus Ebola (MVE) est resté relativement bas cette semaine, avec 21 nouveaux cas confirmés dans les provinces du Nord-Kivu et de l’Ituri au cours de la semaine épidémiologique allant du 14 au 20 octobre. Les fluctuations observées dans l’incidence des cas (Figure 1) ne sont pas surprenantes compte tenu des difficultés rencontrées par les équipes chargées de la riposte au cours des dernières semaines.

Ebola Virus Disease Democratic Republic of Congo: External Situation Report 63, 15 October 2019

World Health Organization WHO, (2019)


In the past week, from 7 to 13 October, 15 new confirmed Ebola virus disease (EVD) cases were reported from five health zones in two affected provinces in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. While it is encouraging to see another week of relatively low numbers of newly confirmed cases (Figure 1), these are occurring in a concentrated area where limited access and insecurity pose challenges for the response. In such environments, risks of resurgence remain very high, as do the risks of re-dispersion of cases. For example, this past week, several people who were eventually confirmed as positive for EVD sought healthcare in health zones which are no longer experiencing ongoing transmission, such as Beni.
