A new case of the Ebola virus has been confirmed in Congo just 3 days before the country was expected to declare an end to the outbreak. Now, their health system may be faced with battling 2 virus outbreaks at once.

The new case was confirmed in Beni, a community that had been an epicenter of the second-deadliest Ebola outbreak in history.

It had been nearly 42 days without a case, and WHO chief Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said Congo’s declaration had been planned for Monday. “We have been preparing for and expecting more cases,” he said, reflecting the caution that mixed with optimism in recent days.

Collin Heuer says:

Now that everyone is focused on the coronavirus and it worsening and is a global pandemic. if it blows up in Africa with the Ebola virus we may see it mutate with it and they both don't have a cure for it so it could globalise too and then with the great recession/depression which will be and it probably will be. be even worse then the great depression in the 20s/30s .probably most of the human race will die including not only sicknesses but also starvation,or getting killed,war,riots,and natural disasters
