Ebola Outbreak. The outbreak is currently affecting the Equateur province with a population of approximately 2.5 million. 3 Health Zones of Bikoro, Iboko and Wangata in Equateur province have reported suspected cases. Wangata Health Zone, Mbandaka city, is an urban area with population over 1 million, and a transport hub of the River Congo. The spread of the disease to an urban area, with limited safe treatment and isolation facilities, brings additional risks. The affected area is very remote with limited mobile telephone networks and difficult road conditions. The estimated distance from the epicentre to the capital of the Equateur province, Mbandaka, is 280km by road and can also be accessed via an airstrip that is 8km away from Bikoro, and the distance between the airstrip and Ikoko Impenge is approximately 30 km. This area of DRC has not suffered previous documented EVD outbreaks before the current outbreak. Equateur province, Zones of Bikoro, Iboko and Wangata and Mbandaka city
