Second Ebola case detected in eastern Congo's main city

GOMA, Democratic Republic of Congo, July 30 (Reuters) - A second case of Ebola was detected on Tuesday in the eastern Congolese city of Goma, a Congolese health official said, increasing fears the virus could establish a foothold in the densely populated area close to the Rwandan border.

“All measures have been put in place so that the case is taken care of in Goma,” the health official quoted the head of Congo’s Ebola response team, Jean-Jacques Muyembe, as saying in an official statement. (Reporting by Fiston Mahamba; Writing by Alessandra Prentice; Editing by Alison Williams)
