On to the latest on the Ebola outbreak Congo's health minister says as many as 15 people may have died so far in the country's latest bout with the virus.
Ebola had first been identified in Congo in 1976 and this would be the 7th time the country is dealing with an outbreak.
The minister said tests have identified a different strain of the virus from the Zaire strain in West Africa: one, of a Sudanese strain of Ebola and another, a combination of the two.
The minister said the Djera region where those 15 fatalities were recorded some 12-hundred kilometers from the capital would be placed under quarantine.//
