Four cases of the disease were positively confirmed in the country's North Kivu province and more are anticipated, Dr. Oly Ilunga Kalenga, the country's health minister, said.

Twenty people have already died from haemorrhagic fevers in and around Mangina, a densely populated town about 30 km (18 miles) southwest of the city of Beni and 100 km from the Ugandan border, the ministry said in its statement, without saying when the deaths occurred.

Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, director general of the World Health Organization (WHO), said in a tweet on Wednesday that health officials would continue to fight the "constant threat" of Ebola in the DRC.

Health officials said a quick worldwide response and the vaccination of more than 3,300 people were decisive factors in containing the virus.

North Kivu hosts over 1 million displaced people. "It is, on the other hand, worrying that this area is a conflict zone.It is an area with lots of displacement, so the access can be hampered in that way".

The swift vaccinations of more than 3,300 people helped in containing the previous outbreak, which saw 33 deaths.

"North Kivu is a different story, which makes me a little nervous", he said. The province shares borders with Rwanda and Uganda with a great deal of cross border movement due to the trade activities.

The response to the presumptive positive outbreak of Ebola in north-eastern Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) will be "highly complex", according to a senior public health expert at the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC).

But when he was asked about the 2015 incident, Meyer said, "I was never told about anything". "I volunteered to do that". Meyer posted a 73-8 record, including one national championship, during his seven seasons at Ohio State .

Ebola is endemic in the DRC, which now has had 10 outbreaks since the virus first was discovered there in 1976.

Ebola, believed to be spread over long distances by bats, causes hemorrhagic fever, vomiting and diarrhea and is spread through direct contact with body fluids. Beni has been the site of intense fighting in recent decades, and between 2014 and 2016, more than 800 people were killed in the area, many of them by machete.

Congolese and worldwide health officials deployed an experimental vaccine that helped contain its spread after it reached a large rivr port city.
