A report in STATnews (statnews.com): Just when you thought Ebola virus was only a memory, two more cases were discovered.  By the time they were ascertained (found) they had already died.  These cases brought a stop to the hoped-for announcement of the end of the latest Ebola outbreak.  This outbreak, which was in the Democratic Republic of the Congo in the provinces of North Kivu and Ituri, has killed at least 2,274 people out of 3,454 known to have been infected.  It was the second-largest outbreak on record, and it is still not quite over.

The World Health Organization (WHO), the Congolese government, and its partners (unspecified), are still monitoring the situation in Congo.  There is no excuse for the administration’s threat to end US funding for the WHO when things like this are still going on.  The fickle and sociopathic, narcissistic insistence on fealty continues.
