[Correspondence] Ebola virus epidemic in war-torn eastern DR Congo

Ebola virus disease is a highly contagious and frequently lethal infection. The largest epidemic to date occurred in west Africa in 2014–16 and killed more than 11 000 people.1 On Aug 1, 2018, the Ministry of Health of the DR Congo declared an outbreak of Zaire Ebola virus in the North Kivu province—the country’s tenth outbreak since the discovery of Ebola virus disease in 1976. Since then, the Ebola virus epidemic has spread to the Ituri province and, as of Aug 25, 2018, 83 cases (28 more probable cases) and 44 deaths (28 more probable deaths) have been confirmed.
