The declaration of the end of the outbreak is expected on 2 July following a 42 day period since the last confirmed case tested negative for the second time. The 42 day period is twice the maximum incubation period for Ebola and is used to confirm the interruption of human to human transmission of the disease. Following this period enhanced surveillance will continue for 90 days together with heightened infection, prevention and control measures. This EVD outbreak in the Democratic Republic of the Congo was notified to WHO by the MoH on 11 May 2017. The cluster of cases and deaths of previously unidentified illness had been reported since late April 2017. port/democratic-republic-congo/ebola-virus-disease-democratic-republic-congo-external-situation-23

Thanks for the update Zip.

However, "God" will never help...

Only clear and concise and very very strict quarantine procedures will eventually curb this for the time being.
