WHO chief says Ebola outbreak in Congo is stabilising

GENEVA, June 8 (Reuters) - The fight against a deadly Ebola outbreak in Democratic Republic of Congo is giving reason for cautious optimism, World Health Organization chief Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said on Friday.

“It’s stabilising. We’re optimistic, cautiously optimistic,” he told Reuters.

He said he would travel to Congo on Sunday to check on progress a month into the outbreak, and would also go to neighbouring Central African Republic as part of a drive to build up health systems in the fragile and impoverished country. (Reporting by Tom Miles Editing by Hugh Lawson)
