Since the end of April, a number of people in northern Democratic Republic of the Congo have become sick with an “undiagnosed illness,” and three people have died as a result. Yesterday, the country’s Ministry of Health told the World Health Organization that one of the deaths was caused by the Ebola virus.

This should be contained asap, otherwise it will cause a public health crisis again in DR of Congo that will take a lot of innocent lives.

I have said this before, and I'll say it again. These Africans need to stop cutting down the virgin forest and trading bush meat. In every single Ebola outbreak, these were the major drivers. Why they want bush meat, when they can have commercially produced beef or mutton?

As I understand it, the outbreak started again in a remote village of Congo. Maybe they don't have any means as livelihood that's why the only choice they have is to kill and eat bush meat. Without knowing that this animals is sick and is the carrier of the virus. I hope this should be prioritized by the government of Congo, otherwise we do not want a full blown outbreak that will be going hard to control in the next couple of months. IMHO.

This is a very sad news and I do hope that the World Health Organization could contain the virus so that the number of deaths could not increase in number. Ebola virus is a very deadly disease since it can spread very fast since it is very contagious and can spread inside the persons body very fast causing him to die in just a few day. If this will not be contained other regions will also be affected.

I know we African eat bush meats but for your information not all bush meats that carry Ebola virus in the body. If all the bush meats has Ebola in their blood then almost all African could have been wiped out by now.

Probably but if the virus mutated and has another patogen, its a good idea to study it first and applied the vaccine at the same time.

The Ebola virus is mostly contained in the remote caves, deep inside the forests. Most of these locations are in protected areas, where hunting is not allowed. But money-minded people pay no heed to the regulations and push deeper and deeper in to these areas. And as a result we have more outbreaks of Ebola.
