GENEVA, August 25, 2:44 /ITAR-TASS/. The World Health Organization (WHO) awaits the results of additional laboratory tests so as to confirm fatalities caused by Ebola virus in the Democratic Republic of Congo.
WHO press secretary Gregory Hartl said here on Sunday that it is also essential to determine whether there is a connection with the epidemic of the dangerous disease in West African countries, the epidemic which has already claimed more than 1,400 lives.
It is necessary to wait for the results of confirmation tests, Hartl said, adding that the results would be possibly become known on Monday.
In so doing, Hartl did not rule it out that the developments might be unconnected. This may refer to two different subtypes (of Ebola virus), which means that there are two different outbreaks, he said.
