Ebola 'kills 17 people' in the Democratic Republic of Congo raising fears of an epidemic

At least 17 people are today feared to have died from a new outbreak of Ebola in the Democratic Republic of Congo.

Health officials in the African nation have confirmed two people have the virus - but there has been 21 suspected cases in total - raising fears of an epidemic.

It comes just three years after the Ebola pandemic that killed at least 11,000 people across six countries, including a sole fatality in the US.

Ebola is already considered one of the most lethal pathogens in existence, and the new outbreak has been branded a 'public health emergency'.

Experts fear it could have an 'international impact', considering how quickly the virus decimated West Africa between 2014 and 2016.
