[Comment] Ebola virus disease: 11 323 deaths later, how far have we come?

An ongoing outbreak of Ebola virus disease in Équateur Province, Democratic Republic of the Congo, has caused 57 suspected, probable, and confirmed cases as of June 16, 2018.1 The spread of cases across remote communities and into Mbandaka, a city with land and river connections to Kinshasa and Congo (Brazzaville), has made this the most challenging Ebola virus disease outbreak in the Democratic Republic of the Congo to respond to. As the first major Ebola virus disease outbreak since 2014, the current outbreak holds additional meaning as a test of recent progress by the international community toward global health security objectives.
