The Ministry of Health noted that therapeutic treatments are still in country from the last outbreak, but the species of this Ebola virus has yet to be determined.
In Geneva, the World Health Organisation (WHO) said it still had staff and equipment in place in DR Congo after dealing with the May-July outbreak, and this would give it a "head-start". Out of six blood samples analysed, four tested positive of the virus.
A total of 29 persons died during the most recent outbreak, which was declared over, when two weeks had passed without a new case emerging, following the release of the last patient from care.
Efforts to contain the virus could be complicated by security problems. "The major barrier will be safely accessing the affected population", Peter Salama, WHO Deputy Director-General of emergency preparedness and response, said in a statement.
Miami, FSU, UCF all appear in preseason coaches’ poll
This is Florida State's lowest preseason ranking in the coaches' poll since they were 20th in Jimbo Fisher's first season (2010). The Seminoles and new coach Willie Taggart were No. 19 while UCF found the No. 23 spot following a flawless 13-0 season.
Authorities did not immediately say how many cases had been detected.
The province shares borders with Rwanda and Uganda with a great deal of cross-border movement due to the trade activities, which, World Health Organization warned, could increase the risk of possible spread of the virus.
The latest outbreak is the 10th in the DRC since 1976, when it was discovered in the north of the country, then called Zaire, and named after a river nearby. It spreads through contact with bodily fluids of those infected, including the dead.
An outbreak from 2014 to 2016 killed over 11,000 people in Sierra Leone, Liberia and Guinea.
