Time now for a look through the international headlines we′re following this Tuesday morning. For that, we turn to our Eunice Kim, standing by at the NewsCenter. Good morning, Eunice. Starting with the Ebola outbreak… Congo now says… it is observing new Ebola deaths, but it could be dealing with a different strain from the one that has now killed more than more than 14-hundred people in West Africa?
That′s right, Mark. Congo of course was where Ebola was first identified, back in 1976… and this would be the 7th time the nation is dealing with an outbreak.
And its health minister says as many as 15 people may have died so far in this latest round.
He said one of the cases had tested positive for the Sudanese strain of Ebola… while another was a combination of the Sudanese and the Zaire strain… the Zaire strain being the strain that′s creating havoc in West African countries currently.//
Meanwhile… back in Libera… a doctor there who had received the experimental drug ZMapp died late Sunday. Dr. Abraham Borbor was the deputy chief medical doctor at Liberia′s largest hospital.
