The outbreak is in the market town of Bikoro in the north-west of the country. Yet exactly why the DRC is hit so often remains an unanswered question.
Worldwide health organizations are on heightened alert regarding the current Ebola outbreak in Bikoro, the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC).
"Nigerian Center for Disease Control (NCDC) will also consider sending some team to DRC as part of building capacity for managing the outbreak", he told reporters.
This is DRC's ninth outbreak of Ebola since the discovery of the virus in the country in 1976.
Two of those cases are confirmed to be Ebola. Three of the 32 cases were among healthcare workers. The infection is transmitted by direct contact with the blood, body fluids, and tissues of infected animals or people. During this time, there were 11 reported cases of the disease in the U.S. The government assures Kenyans and travellers that there is no Ebola case. The five new cases were then identified and sent to the laboratory, Congo's government said.

The CDC says health care providers caring for Ebola patients are at the highest risk.
The overall risk at the regional level is considered moderate because of the proximity to the Congo river, which links with both the capitals of the Republic of the Congo and the Central African Republic.
In response to this, Khwima Longwe sarcastically said: "Kuno Mulungu amangotimvera chifundo kuti matenda enawa asamafike shuwa" (saying we only survive some of these catastrophes that ought to befell on us because of our negligence by just God's grace).
