The Democratic Republic of Congo is confirming a case of Ebola in Wangatane
The town is close to the regional capital of Mbandaka, home to over 1 million people.

It kills between 25 to 90% of those infected, with an average of about 50%.

To be used by “exposed health professionals... who have been in contact with confirmed cases...”
