Ebola outbreak two confirmed cases in DRC

Nigeria has rolled out Ebola screening measures as WHO and Democratic Republic of Congo's government mobilise to contain the outbreak.

    The World Health Organization says it has recorded two confirmed cases of Ebola and 30 probable or suspected cases in Democratic Republic of Congo.

    The country's health minister says one person has died of the virus.

    Congo declared a new outbreak of Ebola on Tuesday after tests on two patients, near the remote town of Bikoro, came back positive.
