LONDON – The World Health Organization says that "substantial risks" remain in the ongoing Ebola outbreak in northeast Congo. Although control measures work, health authorities still can not accurately track where the deadly virus is spreading. 19659002] The UN Board of Health has issued a new statement stating that most of the patients recently admitted to Ebola clinics received experimental treatments and that many contacts were immunized with a novel vaccine.
Four of the 13 new cases from the city of Beni were not previously identified as contacts, which means that officials do not know how they were exposed to Ebola.
The WHO also cites "sporadic cases" of high-risk behaviors such as unsafe burials that could aggravate the outbreak. To date, 86 cases have been confirmed, including 47 deaths
