The eastern DR Congo province of South Kivu has recorded its first confirmed cases of Ebola in the country's year-old epidemic, one of which was a fatality, said the provincial government.
Democratic Republic of Congo recorded 2,382 cases of Ebola, of which 1,606 were fatal, the Health Ministry says.
People in parts of the Democratic Republic of the Congo have linked the response to the Ebola outbreak with political disenfranchisement making it harder for foreign organisations to contain the outbreak.
Victim was the grandmother of a five-year-old boy who died on Tuesday after crossing into Uganda with his family from the Democratic Republic of Congo.
A 5-year-old boy vomiting blood becomes the first cross-border victim of Ebola in the current outbreak, while two more people in Uganda test positive for the highly contagious disease that has killed nearly 1,400 in Democratic Republic of Congo.
