Congo health minister resigns over government handling of Ebola
Health minister criticises outside pressure to deploy a second Ebola vaccine manufactured by Johnson & Johnson
Goma — Democratic Republic of Congo's (DRC's) health minister, Oly Ilunga, resigned on Monday in protest at the presidency's announcement last week that it was stripping his team of control over the response to the Ebola outbreak.
Ilunga has overseen the nearly year-long response to DRC's latest Ebola epidemic, which is the second deadliest in history. It has killed more than 1,700 people and infected more than 800 others.
