As of 24 April 2016, with 8,205 cases incl. 158 deaths since the beginning of the year, the cumulative incidence observed is the 3rd highest recorded since 2009. Case management is very limited in certain regions (Mongala, Tshopo, Equateur, Ituri and to a lesser extent in Haut Katanga). Recent floods in Tshopo, Mongala and Equateur are likely to exacerbate the epidemic in these areas.
