WHO declares the end of Ebola in DRC

WHO (World Health Organization) declared an end to the most recent outbreak of Ebola in the Democratic Republic of Congo on Sunday.

“With the end of this epidemic, DRC has once again proved to the world that we can control the very deadly Ebola virus if we respond early in a coordinated and efficient way,” said Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, the newly appointed WHO director-general, who is a native of Ethiopia and the first African to head the agency.
