Over the last 7 months, the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) has reported more than 400 cases of Ebola virus disease (EVD). In this short report, we estimate the dynamics associated with EVD in the DRC since April 2018, as well as the final expected outbreak size under current transmission conditions. We conclude with a discussion regarding the potential effects of ongoing vaccine (i.e. rVSV-ZEBOV) deployment on outbreak dynamics to date.
