On Friday the United Nations health agency had announced that it was preparing for all scenarios, including the "worst case scenario", in the latest Ebola outbreak in DR Congo.
Democratic Republic of Congo reported 39 suspected, probable or confirmed cases of Ebola between April 4 and May 13, including 19 deaths, the World Health Organization said on Monday.
The Democratic Republic of Congo and United Nations agencies began deploying emergency teams of specialists over the weekend to try to prevent the spread of an Ebola epidemic suspected to have infected more than 30 people, they said on Sunday.
The WHO has deployed 50 public health experts to support the health ministry of the DRC with response activities.
Congo had suffered eight Ebola epidemics previous, but owing to remote geography and poor transport links they have tended to fizzle out rather than spread to become a national crisis.

The virus which is transmitted by bats was first discovered in DRC in 1976 and named after the Ebola river.
"It is evident that two or three months earlier, some cases of hemorrhagic fever and some deaths occurred", Moeti said.
Ebola then spreads through human-to-human transmission via direct contact with the blood, secretions, organs or other bodily fluids of infected people, and with surfaces and materials contaminated with these fluids. Caretakers, nurses and doctors treating Ebola patients also are at high risk.
At present the outbreak did not meet the criteria for declaring a "public health event of worldwide concern", which would trigger the formation of an emergency WHO committee.
The latest Ebola outbreak in the region northest of Kinshasa near the border with the Republic of Congo has so far killed 17 people.
