(EOC Activation: June 2019-present)
The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) activated its Emergency Operations Center on Thursday, June 13, 2019, to support the inter-agency response to the current Ebola outbreak in eastern Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC). The CDC is assisting the DRC and Ugandan governments, countries bordering the outbreak area, and local and international partners. As part of the Administration’s whole-of-government effort, CDC subject matter experts are working with the USAID Disaster Assistance Response Team (DART) on the ground in the DRC and the American Embassy in Kinshasa to support the Congolese and international response.
