The West African country was declared free of the virus five years ago.


The World Health Organization has announced that it has confirmed a fourth case of Ebola virus in the Democratic Republic of the Congo.


As health officials scrambled to vaccinate individuals in the high-risk areas to contain the potential outbreak, the WHO earlier in the week said that a woman died from the virus in Butembo, a city in North Kivu Province and an epicenter of a previous Ebola outbreak that lasted until early summer. The agency has since confirmed three additional cases.

In addition, officials in Guinea declared an outbreak over the weekend after at least three people died in recent weeks from the Ebola virus and four more people were confirmed to be infected. Health officials have traced this latest outbreak to a funeral in early February.
