Rising Case Count, but a Promising Slowdown in Beni

The Democratic Republic of the Congo’s Ebola case count continues to rise, but the WHO cited a promising development yesterday: Activity is declining in the hotspot of Beni.
The Numbers, according to the latest health ministry update:

  • 11 more cases, bringing the total to 560 (512 confirmed)
  • 2 more infections in health workers this past week—adding up to 55 cases and 19 deaths
  • # Vaccinated since Aug. 8: 49,940.

Despite ongoing community resistance and conflict, the WHO expressed optimism, saying responders are making meaningful progress.
