The World Health Organization (WHO) reported on Monday (01/06) that the Democratic Republic of Congo is suffering from a new Ebola outbreak.

The six new cases of the disease – four of which resulted in deaths – have been recorded in Mbandaka, near the Congo border. According to the Director-General of WHO, Tedros Adhanom, the warning serves as an example for countries not to forget other serious diseases in times of the new coronavirus pandemic.

“This is a reminder that Covid-19 is not the only health threat that people face,” he said. He stressed that the entity monitors other health emergencies in the world.
