Days after the first Goma case was announced, the World Health Organization declared the Ebola outbreak a rare global emergency. For months health officials had feared that an Ebola case would be confirmed there.

Congolese officials say they have increased surveillance at points of entry and sanitary control in and around Goma.

The Ebola virus is highly contagious and has an average fatality rate of about 50 percent, although an experimental but effective Ebola vaccine has been rolled out. Neighboring Rwanda, Uganda and South Sudan began vaccinating health workers weeks or months ago.

There is no licensed treatment for Ebola and survival can depend on seeking treatment as quickly as possible.

In the first case in Goma earlier this month, a pastor tested positive and later died after arriving in Goma by bus from a rural area hardest hit by the outbreak. The epidemic has killed more than 1,700 people since it was declared nearly a year ago, becoming the second-worst Ebola outbreak on record.
