Article: 54/1303

The World Health Organization (WHO) reports that there have been no new cases of Ebola virus disease (EVD) in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) since 17 February 2020.

The absence of new cases is a very positive development, but it is essential to maintain surveillance and response operations until and after the end of outbreak declaration, as outlined in the WHO recommended criteria.

Further information and advice on EVD is available on the TRAVAX (for health professionals) and fitfortravel (for the general public) websites.
