Health officials in the Democratic Republic of Congo on Monday announced an end to the latest outbreak of Ebola in that country.

The UN’s children’s agency Unicef said in a statement that a quick response by the authorities and partners had helped contain the outbreak.

The 12th outbreak was the third to be recorded in the country in less than a year.
