An outbreak of Ebola virus disease was identified by the World Health Organization in early May 2018 in the Bikoro region of the Democratic Republic of the Congo. In initial reports 27 cases of hemorrhagic fever were reported, with 17 deaths. Two of the cases were confirmed as ebola.
At the time of this writing an additional two cases of ebola have been confirmed, with 11 more suspected.
Will this outbreak be contained to less than 50 cases of Ebola?
Resolution will be based on WHO data when they declare the outbreak over.
