A new Ebola outbreak has been confirmed in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, with 44 cases reported so far, including one in a city of 1.2 million people. While WHO says they will use contact tracing to monitor everyone who may have been exposed, community monitoring of entire neighbourhoods may be needed to stop Ebola from spreading.
