Ebola Outbreak: DRC Expands Anti-Disease Vaccine Program
Local Editor

The Democratic Republic of Congo's [DRC] vaccination program against the ongoing Ebola Virus Disease [EVD] outbreak expanded from the town of Mbandaka to encompass the Bikoro and Iboko health zones, according to a press release issued by the country's Ministry of Public Health.


"On Monday, May 28, 2018, the Minister of Health, Dr. Oly Ilunga Kalenga, launched the vaccination against the Ebola virus disease in the health zones of Bikoro and Iboko, in the Province of Equateur," the press release read.

Since the program was launched on May 21, a total of 368 people have already received the vaccination against EVD, including the DRC health minister.

"A peak of vaccinations was recorded on Saturday, May 26, with 104 people vaccinated, one day after the Minister of Health set an example by getting himself vaccinated," the statement added.

As of Sunday, the DRC had 35 confirmed cases of EVD.

Last week, the World Health Organization warned that the outbreak might spread to the capital city of Kinshasa and neighboring countries.
