WHO says 70 died from hemorrhagic illness in DRC; denies outbreak is Ebola
Researchers are still trying identify the disease affecting the Democratic Republic of Congo
August 21, 2014 3:07PM ET
At least 70 people have died in northern Democratic Republic of Congo from an outbreak of hemorrhagic gastroenteritis, the World Health Organization said on Thursday, denying that the illness was Ebola.
A WHO report issued Thursday and seen by Reuters said that 592 people contracted the disease and 70 of them have died. Five health care workers, including one doctor, are among the dead.
"This is not Ebola," a WHO spokesman said in an email to Reuters on Thursday.
More than 1,300 people have died from the disease and many experts do not expect the epidemic to be brought under control this year.
The WHO said it had drawn up a draft strategy plan to combat Ebola in West Africa over the next six to nine months, implying that it does not expect to halt the epidemic before the end of the year.

There is no need to worry about this. Getting the ebola is like the chance of getting struck by lightning, or winning the lottery. So many people on this planet and your odds are 1,000 people have it compared to the 9 or so billion people on this planet. DO the math. I'm pretty sure that it is more favorable of odds to get struck by lightning than to catch the ebola zombie virus.
