“The gold miner ... will have contaminated several people, but for the moment it is only his wife and one of his ten children who are sick,” Muyembe said.

The man himself had died of the virus earlier this week and only sought treatment more than a week after starting to show symptoms.

“The individual concerned spent time with his family ... (being) very symptomatic within the community. So we did expect further cases and we are seeing further cases,” Margaret Harris, a spokeswoman for the World Health Organisation (WHO), which declared Ebola an international health emergency last month, told journalists in Geneva.

A sister of that same miner who had traveled to Congo’s South Kivu province was swiftly identified and brought back to Goma, Muyembe said.

DJ-Only if we are very lucky Ebola is under control in Goma.
