Ebola is spreading, and more people are dying

Ebola is spreading in  northern part of Democratic Republic of Congo. Last week the World Health Organization came out and said that  3 people have died possibly of Ebola. On Saturday it was confirmed that the reason 3 people died was because of Ebola. Health officials from WHO are investigating 17 other cases linked to Ebola. As of right now there is no vaccine to prevent or cure Ebola. The United States Center for Disease Control has been notified the Ebola news in Congo. They are ready to provide and support Congo with whatever needs. This is not new to the country of Congo. The country has had 8 outbreaks of Ebola since 1976.  In 2014 the outbreak of Ebola claimed 49 lives. In 1995, 250 people died from the outbreak.

The World Health Organization is advising people to be aware of their surroundings, and to go to the feel if they have fever or other symptoms. Also there are forces on the ground to provide leadership to mount an effective response to the outbreak.
