The fight against Ebola in the Democratic Republic of the Congo has intensified, after health authorities confirmed the first Ebola case in the major city of Goma.
World Vision scaled up its response in anticipation of the spread of the deadly virus, with more than 9000 people reached so far.
The DRC Ministry of Health confirmed this week a pastor who had been working in Butembo, one of the hardest-hit towns during the outbreak, had tested positive for Ebola.
The pastor had travelled to Goma on a bus and was taken to an Ebola Treatment Centre on Sunday. He has reportedly died.
