DRC Live Updates
- The Democratic Republic of Congo has reported that a second person fell victim to Ebola in the days before health authorities had hoped to declare an end to the latest outbreak there.
- Today had been the deadline to declare the 20-month Ebola epidemic in DRC over, but on Friday, a 26-year-old man, in the city of Beni, was listed as having died from the disease, and a young girl who was being treated in the same health centre died on Sunday.
- It means DRC is now battling two epidemics: Ebola and coronavirus. Since 1 August 2018 the ebola outbreak has claimed 2,276 lives; coronavirus has so far killed 20, out of 234 known cases.
