Yellow fever in DRC
Created: 24/06/2016 +

  • As of 19 June, 1,106 suspected and 68 confirmed cases of yellow fever have been reported in DRC and 75 people have died. Cases have been reported in Kinshasa, Kongo-Central, and Kwango.
  • There is a high risk that the outbreak will spread into other provinces that share the border with Angola: Kasai, Kasai-Central, and Lualaba.
  • The porous border between Angola and DRC and uncontrollable movement of people and mosquitoes across the border hamper the response.
