DR Congo Declares Ebola Over In North-East

The Ebola outbreak in the north-east of the Democratic Republic of Congo, which began in August 2018, is over, the WHO says in a tweet quoting a government minister.

The centre of the outbreak was in Ituri province but there were also cases in North and South Kivu.

It was the second-most deadly Ebola outbreak in history, after the one which hit West Africa in 2014-16.
