According to WHO, the country's health minister requested the United Nations agency's support after one of five blood specimens tested positive for the Ebola virus disease.

Another WHO spokesman, Eric Kabambi, said: "The case is in a very remote zone, very forested, so we are a little lucky".

The disease was first identified in 1976.

A wider outbreak occurred in Guinea, Sierra Leone and Liberia in 2014-2015, killing more than 11,000 people.

A spokesperson for the World Health Organization told Reuters on Friday that a person in the Democratic Republic of Congo had died after becoming infected with Ebola, a contagious virus that causes hemorrhagic fever.

National Basketball Association admits Celtics lost time on final possession
Beal, who started the game 0-7 from three-point range knocked down his first of the game late in the fourth to cut into the lead. While that series probably needed to go seven games, this one between budding rivals in the Celtics and Wizards absolutely did.

Instead, they said it should be given to those who have close contacts with Ebola patients, the contacts of those contacts, and the local and worldwide health workers who might be treating anyone infected with Ebola.

Now health officials are considering whether to deploy an experimental Ebola vaccine against the outbreak, for the first time since the WHO gave it preliminary approval in April.

The vaccine was tested in a trial involving almost 12,000 people in Guinea and Sierra Leone during 2015 and 2016.

"We were able to estimate the efficacy of the vaccine as being 100 percent in a trial", Ira Longini, a biostatistician at the University of Florida, told NPR's Michaeleen Doucleff last December.

"The fact that this is a country that has experience dealing with Ebola should give us hope that we won't see a pandemic on the scale of the 2014 outbreak that hit West Africa", Dr. Seth Berkley, Gavi CEO, said in a statement.

Next global cyber-attack likely on Monday
German rail operator Deutsche Bahn said some electronic signs at stations announcing arrivals and departures were infected. The interior ministry said on its website that around 1,000 computers had been infected but it had localized the virus.

"Our country is full of people well-trained in this matter and our health professionals also helped contain similar epidemics in other countries", the health ministry said in its statement.

This followed the outbreak of the disease in Congo.

The health minister, therefore, directed that all Nigerian health workers should maintain a high index of suspicion by screening all fevers for Ebola. Of those who received the vaccine immediately, none developed the Ebola virus.

World Health Organization has faced criticism in the past for its failure to tackle outbreaks due to its slow response. "We've shown that by working collaboratively, across global borders and sectors, we can develop and test vaccines rapidly and use them to help bring epidemics to an end".
