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.

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
