The new case is the wife of a man who died of the virus earlier this week.

It went on to stress the need for Governments and civil society in affected and at-risk countries to work urgently with partners to improve their preparedness to prevent, detect and respond to possible cases, as well as to implement optimal vaccine strategies that have maximum impact in curtailing the outbreak.

Fourth Ebola case found in Congo city, raising fears of faster spread A fourth case of Ebola has been confirmed in the eastern Congo city of Goma, the government said late on Thursday, raising fears of an acceleration in infections close to the border with Rwanda.

This week marks one year since the start of the ongoing Ebola outbreak in the DRC that has already killed more than 1,700 people, making it the second worst Ebola outbreak in history. "So we did expect further cases and we are seeing further cases", Margaret Harris, a spokeswoman for the World Health Organisation (WHO), which declared Ebola an worldwide health emergency last month, told journalists in Geneva. The relatives had travelled from Goma to Birava in South Kivu province causing panic. On July 17, the World Health Organization (WHO) declared Ebola in the DRC as a public health emergency of worldwide concern.

Rwanda has reopened its border with the Democratic Republic of the Congo after reportedly closing it yesterday over Ebola fears. Two other daughters were negative in preliminary checks.

Two have died in Uganda but they caught the disease in DRC before fleeing the country, and aren't believed to have infected anybody while travelling.

"The two patients' vital signs that are out of danger and we hope they will become the first people cured in Goma", Muyembe said.

Goma, a city of at least 1 million people, lies nestled among hills and an active volcano bordering Rwanda - whose authorities briefly shut the border in panic on Thursday, against advice from health officials.

"When you close borders. two things happen: first you get panic, people see this as a signal to start panicking", World Health Organization spokesperson Margaret Harris told reporters in Geneva.

In response to earlier reports saying Rwanda has closed its border with the DRC, she noted that Rwanda's border with DRC remains open, adding that the government would issue a statement in case of a temporary closure at the border.
