The Ebola Virus Disease, formerly known as Ebola Haemorrhagic Fever, is a rare but severe and oftentimes fatal illness in humans. Since 1976, there have been 10 outbreaks of the disease. However the 2018 outbreak has protracted and extended to the main commercial centre in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). As a Public Health Emergency of International Concern, the disease is being viewed as an extraordinary event constituting a public health risk to other States through the international spread of disease.
