GENEVA / Kampala. The virus that threatens Ebola's life continues to spread in Congo in central Africa, and neighboring countries are alarmed. In Uganda, 1,600 aids are vaccinated in health centers along the border, Health Minister Jane Ruth Aceng said on weekend.

Ebola suspected cases have already been reported from southern Sudan, Uganda and even from Yemen, the World Health Organization (WHO) reported. But by no means there was an Ebola infection.

Almost 12 million people have been tested at the Congo border posts for Ebola signs. There were 14 suspicious cases, one of which was detected.

According to the Congolese Ministry of Health, from the beginning of August to the end of October, 250 people were infected with certainty, and another 35 probably with the Ebola virus. 81 patients recovered, 180 patients died.

WHO is alarmed by the increasing number of cases in Congo. WHO chief Adhanom Ghebreyesus travels to Congo this week. He is also accompanied by the head of the UN peacekeeping mission, Jean-Pierre Lacroix. (AP)
