"Since notification of the cases on 3 May, no deaths have been reported either among the [hospitalized] cases or the healthcare personnel", the Health Ministry statement added.

Out of the four reported cases, two are care-givers at the hospital in Bikoro where the Ebola outbreak has been concentrated, Serge Ngalebato, the hospital's chief surgeon revealed this.

The health ministry said on Tuesday that at least 17 people had died in an area of northwestern Democratic Republic of Congo where health officials have now confirmed an outbreak of Ebola, although it did not give a time-frame for the deaths.

"On Monday, blood samples from five patients in the DRC, particularly in a particular district in DRC, two of the five cases, Ebola was actually confirmed".

The nation's health minister, Dr. Oly Ilunga, has been keeping people updated on social media, tweeting that on Thursday - some 24 hours after the initial announcement of the outbreak - a team of 12 experts landed in Mbandaka, the city closest to the outbreak.

"Our country is facing a new epidemic of Ebola that is a public health emergency of worldwide concern".

Sawyer, a Liberian-American, died at a local hospital and infected several health workers including Stella Ameyo Adedavoh, a doctor who defied orders to allow him to leave the hospital and saved Nigeria from a mass outbreak in the process. The virus was first discovered there in 1976 (when the country was known as Zaire) and is named after the Ebola river.
