Person infected with Ebola in Congo has died -U.N. health agency

KINSHASA, May 12 (Reuters) - A person infected with the Ebola virus in Democratic Republic of Congo has died, a spokesman for the U.N.’s World Health Organization told Reuters on Friday.

“It (the case) is in a very remote zone, very forested, so we are a little lucky. We always take this very seriously,” said spokesman Eric Kabambi. The last outbreak of Ebola in Congo was in 2014 and dozens of people died. (Reporting by Aaron Ross; Writing by Matthew Mpoke Bigg; Editing by Kevin Liffey)
