"All must be done to isolate the Ebola cases, especially since there has been a case in Mbandaka city", said Commissioner for Humanitarian Aid and Crisis Management Christos Stylianides, who is also the EU Ebola Coordinator. There had been 25 deaths, but no new infections among healthworkers, Jasarevic told reporters.
These would be given as a priority to people in Mbandaka who had been in contact with those suspected of carrying the Ebola virus before people in any other affected area, Mr Salama said.
Congo's Ministry of Health has announced 11 new confirmed Ebola cases and two deaths tied to cases in the country's northwest.
A single case of Ebola was confirmed in Mbandaka, a densely populated provincial capital on the Congo River, Congo's Health Minister Oly Ilunga said late Wednesday.
Meanwhile, the public relations officer in the same ministry, Doreen Motshegwa, said their health officials are on high alert and have put measures in place to ward off the spread of the Ebola outbreak in the DRC.
The emergency meeting is to "consider the global risks" of the deadly Ebola virus disease, which has now moved to an urban area of DRC.
An emergency meeting was held by the World Health Organization on Friday in which it said that Ebola poses a "very high" risk to the Congo public. Fourteen of those cases are confirmed to be Ebola virus disease, 10 are suspected and 21 are probable.
Senate Dems claim net neutrality win despite rough road ahead
Still, Democrats argued that net neutrality is needed to make sure that all internet content is treated equally. It must still be voted on in the House of Representatives, however, and signed into law by President Trump .
Mbandaka had three suspected cases in addition to the confirmed case.
Until now, the outbreak was confined to remote areas, where Ebola, which is spread by bodily fluids, travels more slowly.
The WHO is sending 7,540 doses of an experimental vaccine to try to stop the outbreak in its tracks, and 4,300 doses have already arrived in Kinshasa.
The Commission noted that the allocated funding would "ensure deployment of relevant surge capacity to the affected areas, surveillance and contact tracing of Ebola victims as well as active case finding for early detection of those infected". The Republic of Congo and Central African Republic are nearby.
Ebola is thought to be spread over long distances by fruit bats and is often transmitted to humans eating contaminated bushmeat - meat from wild animals such as monkeys or antelopes.
This is the ninth Ebola outbreak in Congo since 1976, when the disease was first identified.
First symptoms generally include the sudden onset of fever, fatigue, muscle pain, headache and sore throat, and this is followed by vomiting and diarrhoea.
