Kinshasa: The Democratic Republic of Congo on Saturday declared itself Ebola-free, after a three-month outbreak of the killer disease claimed at least 49 lives.
"The end of the epidemic... does not mean we are completely out of danger," said Health Minister Felix Kabange Numbi. "Like every other nation the DRC remains threatened by the possible import of the Ebola virus disease raging in west Africa."
