BBC News - Ebola: Democratic Republic of Congo says its outbreak is over
A three-month Ebola outbreak in the Democratic Republic of Congo has ended after claiming at least 49 lives, the country's health minister says.
Felix Kabange said no new cases had been registered since 4 October, though he warned against complacency.
The country's outbreak is unrelated to the one in West Africa which has claimed more than 5,000 lives.
Ebola was first detected in 1976 near the Ebola River in what is now the Democratic Republic of Congo.
Saturday's announcement came 42 days after the last new Ebola case in the country - Ebola outbreaks are usually declared over when two full cycles of the virus' 21 day incubation period finish without further infections.
Ebola can and will be beaten, it is not going to infect and kill millions of Americans.
This once again proves the voices of doom on your monitor, your TV screen and your radio and even on this very forum are outright lying to you in a bid to sell a story and cause hysteria.
These people have acted in a irresponsible manner.
