Eagles: FG to screen DR Congo players for Ebola

Two new deaths from the Ebola virus and seven new confirmed cases have been recorded in the Democratic Republic of Congo [DRC], the country's health ministry said on Tuesday. It also sent more than 35 vaccination experts to Mbandaka on 19 May, including 16 mobilized from West Africa for their previous experience in the field.

The Ministry of Health (MoH) and the Ghana Health Service (GHD) have described social media reports about an outbreak of Ebola in Ghana as untrue and misleading.

Hundreds of people have been in contact with infected people and are being monitored, and they are candidates for the first round of an experimental vaccination campaign that began this week.

The discovery of at least one case in Mbandaka, a densely populated port city on the eastern bank of the Congo River, has raised concerns about the potential for rapid spread of the disease, which had previously been limited to a remote area in the rain forest of Congo's Equateur province. More than 600 contacts have been identified.

In an effort to fight the virus, President Joseph Kabila approved an increase in Ebola emergency funds to more than $4 million. The Cabinet also endorsed the decision to provide free health care in the affected areas and to provide special care to all Ebola victims and their relatives.

According to the article, the World Health Organization and Gavi, a nongovernmental organization that delivers vaccines, said that more than 7500 doses of a new vaccine have been deployed.

Global Communities, a US -based nonprofit that responded to the Ebola outbreak, said in a 2015 report that burial rituals and traditions increased infection rates by almost 70 percent, with caretakers and families often sleeping in the same room as the body overnight and washing the body and themselves using the same water.

Reuters reported that Ebola experts from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) are preparing to go to the Congo now that the virus has spread to an urban area, increasing the risk of a global outbreak.

The city of around 1.2 million people lies on the Congo River, where it is a transport hub to Brazzaville and Kinshasa downstream and to Bangui, upstream.

There is no specific treatment for Ebola. Symptoms include fever, vomiting, diarrhea, muscle pain and at times internal and external bleeding. The virus can be fatal in up to 90 percent of cases, depending on the strain.
