The Democratic Republic of Congo has seen more than 400 Ebola cases since the country declared an outbreak in early August, according to an article on the Becker's Clinical Leadership & Infection Control website.
Health officials are struggling to contain the disease's spread.
Between Nov. 14-20, 36 new Ebola cases were confirmed, seven of which occurred in newborns or infants under age 2. Five health workers were also among those sickened, bringing the total number of health workers infected to 39.
The risk of Ebola spreading to Congo's bordering countries is still high. As of Nov. 25, Uganda had vaccinated 1,175 health workers in anticipation of the outbreak potentially spreading across its borders.
