The WHO Regional Office for Africa said so in the Ebola outbreak situation report posted on its @ WHOAFRO twitter account.
According to the United Nations health agency, 1,804 people have been vaccinated in Guinea while 1,083 people have been vaccinated in the DRC.
Giving the breakdown of cases, WHO said 18 cases had been reported in Guinea while nine people had reported death based on that number.
“We have traced 427 contacts and 81% of contacts are followed up while 1,804 people vaccinated will help prevent the spread.”
Similarly, the United Nations agency for global health said 11 cases had been reported in the DRC, four deaths reported, 643 contacts found and 87% of contacts followed.
Previously, Dr Matshidiso Moeti, WHO Regional Director for Africa, expressed concern over the Ebola resurgence in both countries.
“WHO is stepping up its preparedness and response efforts to this potential Ebola resurgence in West Africa, a region that suffered so much from Ebola in 2014,” Moeti said. (NOPE)
