Every measure has been taken to block the chain of transmission,” Muyembe told AFP.Later on Wednesday Aruna Abedi, the chief Ebola coordinator in the North Kivu province – which has borne the brunt of the outbreak since it began on August 1 last year – said a third person had tested positive for the disease.Abedi said that vaccination had started at the affected health center. “Medical staff and those who had contact with the patient, and those who had contact with them, have been prioritized,” he told AFP.An Ebola response official said the third confirmed case was the one-year-old daughter of the second Goma patient, a father of 10 who had died at the same center earlier in the week.”The girl had already been showing signs of the disease,” the official told AFP on condition of anonymity.load_file(“/includes-n/article_share.html”);RELATED ARTICLES Ebola outbreak a health emergency: WHOThe World Health Organization on Wednesday declared the Ebola outbreak in the Democratic Republic of the Congo a …load_file(“/includes-n/article_most_view.html”);var wxs = (function() {return navigator.userAgent.toLowerCase().indexOf(micromessenger) !== -1})();if (!wxs) {/* * * CONFIGURATION VARIABLES: EDIT BEFORE PASTING INTO YOUR WEBPAGE * * */var disqus_shortname = globaltimes; // required: replace example with your forum shortnamevar disqus_identifier = 1160035;/* * * DONT EDIT BELOW THIS LINE * * */(function () {var dsq = document.createElement(script); dsq.type = text/javascript; dsq.async = true;dsq.src = https:// + disqus_shortname + .disqus.com/embed.js;(document.getElementsByTagName(head)[0] || document.getElementsByTagName(body)[0]).appendChild(dsq);})();}Please enable JavaScript to view the comments powered by Disqus.blog comments powered by Disquswindow._taboola = window._taboola || [];_taboola.push({mode: thumbnails-a,container: taboola-below-article,placement: below article,target_type: mix});load_file(“/includes-n/footer.html”);load_file(“/includes-n/addthis.html”);
