In June this year DR Congo reported of several patients being diagnosed with the disease in Mbandaka, Equateur’s provincial capital.

The outbreak in Mbandaka emerged at a time the country was declaring an end to a different outbreak in the east of the country.

More than 2,000 people died from the disease in the North Kivu and Ituri provinces over two years.
