Ebola was on the brink of being declared over, but new cases have propped up alongside the emergence of the coronavirus.
More than 1,800 people have died in eastern Democratic Republic of Congo since Ebola broke out there in August last year.
Restrictions on travelling to the Democratic Republic of Congo would "impede our ability to effectively control" Ebola virus, Dr John N Nkengasong, a top health officer at African Union said.
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.
