In this episode, I look at two of the biggest stories (outside of COVID-19) during the past week.

The first is the 11th Ebola outbreak in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) was declared over after nearly 6 months and 130 confirmed and probable cases.

The second is research that was presented at the ASTMH meeting that showed human-to-human transmission of Chapare virus in an outbreak that occurred last year.
