The World Health Organization (WHO) says more than 460 people have been killed.

The WHO has said that it has controlled the outbreak, the country’s worst in history, and is working with neighbouring countries to keep the epidemic from crossing the border.

Dozens of Congolese Ebola survivors are dispelling rumours and caring for patients and lone children in the world’s second-deadliest outbreak, health workers said on Thursday.

The virus is spreading fast in eastern Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), with 713 confirmed and probable cases and 460 deaths. It is surpassed only by the 2014-2016 outbreak in Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone, in which more than 11,000 people died.
