Ebola Breakout in Congo


People crossing the border have their temperature taken to check for symptoms of Ebola, at the border crossing near Kasindi, eastern Congo Wednesday, June 12, 2019, just across from the Ugandan town of Bwera. In Uganda, a 5-year-old boy vomiting blood became the first cross-border victim of Ebola in the current outbreak on Wednesday, while two more people in Uganda tested positive for the highly contagious disease that has killed nearly 1,400 in Congo.

Karen Bass (D-CA) questioned the head of the Center for Disease Control & Prevention about the outbreak of ebola in the Democratic Republic of Congo.
