Congo Ebola brought under control

The new outbreak of Ebola in Democratic Republic of Congo has been put under control, the county’s Health Minister, Oly Ilunga Kalenga said.  The outbreak of Ebola killed four before it was reportedly controlled.

Mr Kalenga said a new case had not been recorded for 21 days - the maximum period between exposure to the disease and initial symptoms.

Health workers used an unlicensed American vaccine to stop the disease spreading in remote terrain in the north-east of DR Congo.
