An Ebola death in a major city in the Democratic Republic of Congo has raised fears the ongoing outbreak could spread even further.
Health officials in the African nation yesterday confirmed the virus was responsible for the death of a woman in Butembo, a city of around 1.4 million.
In response, the World Health Organization's emergency response chief has said 'no-one should be sleeping well tonight around the world'.
Local reports claim the unnamed woman was the mother of a known Ebola patient, who travelled from the town at the centre of the outbreak.
