In the Democratic Republic of Congo, over 1,600 people have died from Ebola in the last year. What are the symptoms, and is there any cure? DW takes a closer look.
Scientists have moved a step closer to treating symptoms of the deadly Ebola virus during the second-worst outbreak of the disease. A clinical trial in Congo has shown encouraging survival results.
Congo's new Ebola response coordinator has said half of the cases in the deadly outbreak remain undetected. Health experts fear the disease, which broke out a year ago, could spread into neighboring Rwanda.
Health officials fear an Ebola outbreak in eastern DR Congo could spread in Goma. Earlier in July, the city of two million people registered its first case of the deadly virus.
A year after the outbreak of Ebola in eastern Congo, the government and aid organizations have still not succeeded in bringing the disease under control. There are many reasons for this, says Dirke Köpp.
