There is no specific treatment for Ebola, and the virus can be fatal in up to 90 percent of cases, depending on the strain.
This is the central African country's 10th outbreak since 1976, when the virus was discovered near the eponymous river in the north.
Ebola is believed to be spread over long distances by bats and can turn up in bush meat sold at food markets throughout Congo.
