KINSHASA (Reuters) - Democratic Republic of Congo's Health Minister Oly Ilunga on Thursday announced the first confirmed Ebola death in a new outbreak of the disease and said 11 other people are now confirmed to be infected.
At least 17 people have died since inhabitants of a village in the country's northwest began showing symptoms resembling Ebola several months ago. However, those cases were not confirmed through testing.
