      EBOLA news update
      WHO has increased the risk level from moderate to high because of the first confirmed urban case in the congolese city of Mdandaka
      It's a city of 350 000 inhabitants directly on the Congo river so with an easy escape or transmission route toward downstream or upstream towns
      So far 300 suspected cases (direct or indirected contact with confirmed cases) and 23 deaths
