Congo health officials have made the grim announcement today as the death toll hits 629 with 1,009 confirmed cases.

It is now second only the Ebola outbreak in the western region of Africa that killed 11,000 from 2013 to 2016.

Health workers are being hampered by rampant distrust and violence.

At least five treatment centres have been attacked by armed gangs.

And medical charities have suspended aid amid fears of further violence in the epicentre of the outbreak.

In a statement, the ministry said: “The total is now 1,009 cases.

“The response, led by the Health Ministry in collaboration with its partners, has limited the geographical spread.”

Health workers have been better prepared than during previous outbreaks.

New technologies like a trial vaccine, experimental treatments and futuristic cube-shaped mobile units for treating patients have helped curb the spread of the virus.
