The World Health Organization (WHO) said on Jan. 12 there was no indication the deadly Ebola virus had crossed to Angola from the Democratic Republic of Congo, where it has killed 13 people. "The epidemic is in the province of Kasai in Western Congo. There is no evidence it has spread to Angola," Luis Sambo, WHO regional director for Africa, said after meeting with Angolan President Jose Eduardo dos Santos. His comments came after Angola closed part of its northeastern border with the Congo where an Ebola outbreak, in addition to killing 13 people, is believed to have infected 40 more. (Reuters)
