GENEVA, November 7. /TASS/. The death toll from the Ebola outbreak in West African states of Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone has reached 4,950. As many as 13,241 people are infected, according to a report of the World Health Organization (WHO) as of November 4.
WHO experts say the situation in these three countries is still critical.
At the same time, the report says that no Ebola cases were reported in the Democratic Republic of Congo for almost one month. “Twenty-seven days have passed since the last official case tested negative for the second time and was discharged from hospital. The Democratic Republic of the Congo will therefore be declared free of EVD (Ebola virus disease) 42 days after the date of the second negative test if no new cases are reported,” the document says.
