As of March 24, 2019, public health officials have documented that the Ebola outbreak in eastern Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) has surpassed 1,000 cases; the current total number of confirmed and probable cases is 1009, including 625 deaths and 318 survivors.
On Sunday, DRC health minister Oly Ilunga Kalenga, MD, issued a statement on the 1,000 case milestone.
"This remains a highly complex Ebola outbreak with active transmission in 13 of the 21 affected health zones", said CDC Director Robert R. Redfield, M.D.
"The response begins at the level of the mother who brings her sick child to the health center and accepts that a sample is taken for the laboratory". Liberia on August 30, 2014 said it would deny permission for any crew to disembark from ships at the country's four seaports until the Ebola epidemic ravaging west Africa was under control. As of today 91,286 people have been vaccinated, including 22,708 in Katwa and 21,056 in Beni.

"These numbers show that despite the hard work being done, this outbreak is far from over".
The agency says seven months into the outbreak, the number of cases should be going down, not up.
Though more than 96,000 people have been vaccinated in the country, and more than 44 million border screenings have helped to slow the spread of Ebola, the risk of national and regional spread remains very high, especially when episodes of violence and instability impact the response, the World Health Organization warned in a statement. "With an optimistic outlook this outbreak is predicted to last another six months-but realistically we could be looking towards another year of fighting this disease", Riebl said.
