19 dead, 39 infected in Congo Ebola outbreak: WHO

EBOLA OUTBREAK 19 deaths confirmed 39 suspected cases reported in DRC WHO says

A new experimental vaccine has been shown to be highly effective, though quantities are now limited.

After the world was initially slow to respond to the disease, huge numbers of health care workers and researchers descended on the three countries to care for patients and to test out experimental new drugs.

The resolutions were made following the adoption of a motion moved by Senator Oluremi Tinubu (Lagos-Central) at the plenary on Tuesday.

The upper chamber also urged the Minister of Interior to take necessary steps to check immigration.

Two cases of Ebola have been confirmed in the latest outbreak in a remote northwestern part of Congo.

The first batch of experimental vaccines from the World Health Organization (WHO) against Ebola hemorrhagic fever arrived Wednesday (May 16, 2018) in Kinshasa, capital of the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC).




"The Senate is be reminded that the tide was stemmed by quick response of the Nigerian government vid declaration of emergency, collaboration of federal and states Ministries of Health, use of incidence management approach, identification and follow up contacts".

In our experience, for each confirmed case of Ebola there are about 100-150 contacts and contacts of contacts eligible for vaccination.

The WHO is anxious about the disease reaching the city of Mbandaka with a population of about 1 million people, which would make the outbreak far harder to tackle.

"The aim is for health officials to start using the vaccine, once it's shipped, by the end of the week, or next week if there are difficulties, said WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus..."

Health workers have recorded two confirmed cases, 22 probable cases and 17 suspected cases of Ebola in three health zones of Congo's Equateur province, and identified 432 people who may have had contact with the disease.

According to her, unless hospitals are prepared properly and equipped with Ebola vaccines, it will be an epidemic Nigeria may be unable to take on.
