#Health,#TrueNews,: Ebola virus killin' again. The announcement of outbreak by WHO

An Ebola epidemic has been declared in the Democratic Republic of Congo after it was revealed that the killer virus has left several dead.

The World Health Organisation confirmed three people had died in the northeastern part of the country today.

A spokesperson from the WHO said the latest outbreak is being taken 'very seriously' after announcing the first death.

The announcement comes after the deadly virus swept across much of west Africa in 2014 and 2015, leaving thousands dead.

Many British aid agencies volunteered to help stop the spread of the virus, including nurse Pauline Cafferkey*, who was left critically ill by the deadly disease.

  • December 2014: Pauline Cafferkey travels to Sierra Leone for six weeks to help victims of Ebola.

On her return to Glasgow, the children's nurse is admitted to hospital with a high temperature. She is transferred to the Royal Free Hospital where she spends a month in isolation after being diagnosed with Ebola.
  • January 2015: Ms Cafferkey is discharged from hospital and is said to be making a recovery and no longer infectious. 
  • October 2015: Ms Cafferkey is again admitted to hospital and at one point becomes critical after suffering meningitis caused by Ebola lying hidden in her spinal cord.
  • November 2015: The nurse is discharged from hospital.  
  • February 2016: The nurse is again admitted to hospital after falling ill due to complications associated with the virus.
  • May 2016: Ms Cafferkey says that, although she is clear of Ebola, there are still 'remnants' in her body which cause numbness, swelling and pins and needles but that she is receiving 'the best care in the world'. 
  • September 2016: After an 18-month wait, Ms Cafferkey is cleared of all charges at a Nursing and Midwifery Council hearing.

There was an 18-month investigation after she was accused of concealing her high temperature in a screening centre in Heathrow on her return from Africa in 2014.
  • October 2016: Ms Cafferkey is again sent to hospital under police escort.
