At least 1,800 people have died over Ebola in DRC over the past year
Two Ebola cases were confirmed in Congo’s South Kivu region for the first time this week, health officials said on Friday, more than 700 km (430 miles) south of where the outbreak was first detected.
The cases open up a new front in the fight against an outbreak in Democratic Republic of Congo that has killed at least 1,800 people over the past year, the second biggest toll ever.
