First death from fresh Ebola outbreak confirmed in north west Congo

Four new suspected Ebola cases surface in Congo

In a statement, Mrs. Yakubu said: "Following a fresh outbreak of the deadly Ebola virus in the Democratic Republic of Congo, FAAN has re-assured passengers and other airport users of safety across its network of airports".

THE Federal Government has stepped up screening at major global airports to combat the spread of the Ebola Virus Disease (EVD), the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) said yesterday.

The cases are likely linked to a policeman in the Bikoro health zone who presented symptoms of hemorrhagic fever and died in December, Muyembe said.

Ngaleto said of all cases so far reported, seven were now in the hospital in Bikoro.

This is the ninth time Ebola has been recorded in the Democratic Republic of Congo since the disease made its first known appearance - near the vast central African country's northern Ebola river - in the 1970s.

The two Ebola cases were confirmed as the Zaire strain after officials in the capital, Kinshasa, were alerted early this month to the deaths of 17 people from a hemorrhagic fever and traveled to the Bikoro area to perform tests.

Most of the cases so far have been recorded around the village of Ikoko Impenge, near the northwestern town of Bikoro.

The new outbreak has infected 11 people including three nurses.

"After contact, the nurses began showing signs".

Seven people died of Ebola out of 19 confirmed cases in Nigeria in 2014. "We have isolated them".

He lives only a short time from here, and he's loved, from what I felt today in the crowd, and the people in locker room now. We had to maintain our level all the season, try to break the record, maintain our intensity", he told a news conference.

Five samples were collected from hospitalized patients, three from Ikoko-Impenge and two from Bikoro.

The health ministry said on Thursday it had dispatched a team of 12 experts to the area to try to trace new contacts of the disease, identify the epicentre and all affected villages and provide resources.

Nigeria have already taken measures to stop the disease from entering the country through its border, by tightening security at several entry points. It is in the DRC that the Ebola virus was discovered in 1976.

The worst Ebola epidemic in history ended in West Africa just two years ago after killing more than 11,300 people and infected some 28,600 as it rolled through Guinea, Sierra Leone and Liberia.

Congo's long experience of Ebola and its remote geography mean outbreaks are often localised and relatively easy to isolate.
