A hemorrhagic illness has left at least 70 people dead in the Democratic Republic of Congo.

The World Health Organization made the announcement.

But a spokesman told Reuters in an email that the sickness “is not Ebola.”

A report from the organization seen by the news outlet said that 592 people have contracted the disease, of which 70 have died.

WHO says the illness is a hemorrhagic gastroenteritis, or a severe stomach disease.
