The Ministry of Health said on Monday that the incidence of Ebola epidemic in Congo has now exceeded 1,000, with 629 deaths in the second worst outbreak of the disease in the world.

Health workers have been more prepared than ever before for the latest outbreak of the epidemic, which causes severe vomiting, diarrhea and bleeding, and kills more than half of those infected.

New technologies such as vaccines, experimental treatments and advanced mobile units to treat patients have helped reduce the spread of the virus.

But citizens’ lack of confidence and insecurity in parts of the eastern Democratic Republic of the Congo, where the disease is spreading, hampered efforts to combat it.

Total number is now 1009,” the ministry said in a statement. But “the containment efforts led by the Ministry of Health in collaboration with its partners have reduced the geographical spread of the disease.

Authorities on Wednesday confirmed an Ebola case in Bunia, another city with a population of 1 million.
