According to a recent report published by WHO on 05/23/2018, the death toll of the Ebola epidemic in the northwest Democratic Republic of the Congo on May 20 is 27 – out of 58 confirmed or suspected cases. The public health risk can be considered high due to its potential to spread into urban areas and neighboring countries.
