There is a bit of panic in Congo after a patient being treated for Ebola found a way to escape from a treatment centre in the African country.

According to News website Actualité, DR Congo’s health ministry stated that a person who tested positive for the virus escaped from the Ebola treatment centre in Lubero, in North Kivu province, and is believed to have returned to the community.

According to the website, the patient tested positive for Ebola on 25 July and medical teams are “attempting to trace the individual”. The outbreak has killed more than 1,700 people over the past year and last week, the World Health Organization (WHO) declared the outbreak an international health emergency.
