The Ebola outbreak in the DR Congo's northwest is growing, according to health officials, sounding the alarm weeks after the country officially declared an end to a separate Ebola epidemic which claimed over 2,000 lives.

There have been 54 confirmed cases since June 1 in Mbandaka, a transport hub in Equateur province, including 22 deaths, according to figures released by the country's health ministry on Friday.

There were four additional suspected cases. The outbreak is DR Congo's 11th since Ebola was identified in 1976.



On June 25, the vast central African country officially declared an end to an Ebola epidemic that broke out in the east two years ago, which Health Minister Eteni Longondo said was "the longest, most complex and deadliest" in the country's history.

The two epidemics have no common viral strain, according to the World Health Organization (WHO).
