Congo confirms new ebola outbreak with 2 new cases

The Health Ministry said Tuesday that five samples were taken from suspected cases in Bikoro in the northwest. It said of the five samples sent to the National Institute of Biological Research in Kinshasa, two came back positive for Ebola.

It said since the notification of the cases on May 3, no deaths have been reported among those hospitalized or among health personnel.

The ministry said a team of experts will go to Bikoro on Wednesday to supervise and help monitor the situation to avoid further spread of the disease.

This is the ninth outbreak of the hemorrhagic fever in Congo since 1976.
