 Ebola River

The Ebola River in northern Democratic Republic of the Congo is the headstream of the Mongala River, a tributary of the Congo River. It is roughly 250 km in length.


In 1976 the Ebola virus (EBOV) was first identified near the river, giving it and its relatives their name.[2] EBOV infection causes Ebola virus disease (EVD), formerly known as Ebola hemorrhagic fever (EHF).
