WHO extends Ebola emergency

The UN health agency on Wednesday said it was extending its global emergency designation for the Ebola outbreak in the Democratic Republic of Congo but said the sharp decline in cases was "extremely positive". The recent outbreak was first identified in August 2018 and has since killed more than 2,300 people in eastern DR Congo. The WHO, however, said it was downgrading the national and regional risk of the disease from very high to high, while it kept the global risk at low.
