Health officials are battling to prevent a resurgence of Ebola in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) after the death of a woman who tested positive for the virus.

Eteni Longondo, DRC’s health minister, said the 42-year-old victim died on 3 February in Butembo town in North Kivu province after falling sick several days earlier. She was taken to hospital but died before receiving test results confirming Ebola.

DRC newspaper Actualité reported the victim, a farmer who had fallen ill on 1 February, was transferred to Matanda Hospital in Butembo.

The case comes less than three months after another outbreak of the disease elsewhere in the country was declared over.
