BREAKING NEWS: Ebola Outbreak in Congo as 17 Reported Dead

Congo has been hit with the Ebola outbreak, and it is said to be spreading "very low" due to the fact that it is a remote area, according to reports on Wednesday.

Ebola has been confirmed in at least two people in the northwestern town of Bikoro. Those cases were discovered after officials last week were alerted to at least 17 deaths linked to a hemorrhagic fever in a nearby area in Equateur Province, according to Congo's health ministry and the World Health Organization. There are various hemorrhagic fevers including Ebola.
This is the ninth Ebola outbreak in Congo since 1976, when the deadly disease was first identified. 
There is no specific treatment for Ebola, which is spread through the bodily fluids of people exhibiting symptoms.  Without preventive measures, the virus can spread quickly between people and is fatal in up to 90 percent of cases.
