July 9, 2019 -- The Democratic Republic of the Congo is in the grip of its worst ever Ebola outbreak, with efforts to control the virus hampered by violence from insurgent groups, including attacks on treatment centres.

The outbreak, which began in August 2018, has mainly affected the North Kivu and Ituri provinces in eastern DRC – an area wracked by conflict involving various armed groups.

It is the second deadliest Ebola epidemic in history, behind only the 2014 West Africa outbreak.

As of July 7, there have been over 2,400 confirmed and probable cases of Ebola, of which more than 1,600 people have died, according to WHO figures.


NEW GRAPHIC NEWS - a new website for a new era, coming soon…

And it will be worth the wait! The Graphic News website is undergoing a complete redesign. The new site will not only see improvements in terms of speed and user experience, but will also include many new features. For example, existing subscribers will be able to manage their accounts online via a group dashboard, and add selected graphics to lists for project planning (and which can be shared across the group).

Existing users will need to register individually - we’ll be sending instructions to our main contacts at each group and will be on hand to help you through the process, which we hope will be seamless!


If you don’t already have an account but are interested in the service, just click on the button below and we’ll get back to you within 24 hours.
