Yellow fever continues to spread. The disease, which has caused 200 deaths in Angola, has now killed 21 people in the DRC.


Twenty-one people have died of yellow fever in Democratic Republic of Congo, some of them from infections contracted in neighbouring Angola, the World Health Organization said on Tuesday.

An outbreak has already killed 225 people and infected 1 600 in Angola. There is now a high risk of further spread in Congo, given the number of people who regularly travel between the two countries, the WHO said. - Reuters
