The Democratic Republic of the Congo yesterday declared an outbreak of Ebola virus disease after laboratory results confirmed two cases, the World Health Organization reports. The outbreak is the ninth in the African nation since Ebola was discovered there in 1976. WHO said it is working closely with the DRC government to “rapidly scale up its operations and mobilize health partners using the model of a successful response to a similar EVD outbreak in 2017.”
