As Ebola virus continues to cause havoc in West African countries of Sierra Leone, Liberia, Nigeria, and Guinea, Democratic Republic of Congo in Central Africa has also registered the pandemic.

DRC health minister, Dr. Felix Kabange Numbi has confirmed of the development, saying two people have just died from Ebola during a deadly hemorrhagic fever in a remote, northwestern region of the country.
According to reports, there were 13 deaths in total.

Numbi says the outbreak in his country has “nothing to do with the one in West Africa,”.

But the World Health Organization says it is waiting to confirm the DRC’s findings. In its own labs, it will test to find out which of the five strains of the Ebola virus afflicted the Congolese and whether they match the strain circulating in West Africa, known as Zaire ebola virus.
