The Ebola outbreak in the north-east of the Democratic Republic of Congo, which began in August 2018, is over, the WHO says in a tweet quoting a government minister.
There is however a fresh Ebola outbreak – the 11th in the country’s history – in the north-west of the country.
A case in Mbandaka was announced on 1 June.
For an outbreak to be declared over, there has to be a 42-day period since the last positive case was tested negative and discharged from hospital.
In the 23-month outbreak in the north-east of the country, 3,463 people got the disease and 2,280 died.
