DRC

An outbreak of Ebola in the west of the Democratic Republic of Congo has so far led to 25 deaths and 45 cases reported. This is the 9th outbreak of Ebola in the DRC since 1976. In 2014 the DRC managed to contain the outbreak after 66 cases and 49 deaths. CARE is working on scenario/contingency planning, drawing on lessons from our response to the Ebola ciris in west Africa in 2015, in case the situation should deteriorate.
