The outbreak that was declared in eastern Congo in August is already the second deadliest in history, and efforts to control it have been complicated by attacks on hospitals and Ebola treatment centers and deep community mistrust. Symptoms of the disease include fever, severe headache, and hemorrhaging.
More than 100,000 people have been vaccinated so far, and the treatment has been highly effective, the World Health Organization says.
"Every time we have managed to regain control over the virus and contain its spread, we have suffered major, major security events", said Mike Ryan, the World Health Organization (WHO) emergencies chief. "We are anticipating a scenario of continued intense transmission" of the disease.
The long-standing presence of various rebel groups in Ituri and North Kivu has made it hard for health workers to access those who might have come into contact with Ebola, a figure that now stands at 12 000 people.
But beyond the militias, communities in the aftermath of DRC's December elections "are being manipulated" against cooperating with Ebola responders, Ryan said.

In the end, it was Nitish Rana's quick knock of 26 runs off 13 balls that took the team to a score of 133 runs in 20 overs. However, Rohit Sharma (55*) and Suyakumar Yadav (46*) took Mumbai over the line and top of the table.
Ryan said the United Nations health agency now has enough vaccine stocks to meet its needs but doses may run short.
Vogel cautioned it was not clear who was behind the attacks on health centres and medical professionals, but said worldwide actors and DRC authorities should have done more to try and build trust with communities affected by the epidemic, pointing to widely held local views that the outbreak was fabricated to benefit business-owning local elites or further destabilise the region. More than 11,000 people died then out of 28,000 who were infected. Vaccination campaigns also have slowed in areas too volatile for health personnel to visit.
A ministry statement sent to dpa said 1,008 people have now died from the virus, while 1,529 cases have been recorded.
Many people are afraid to go to Ebola treatment centres because of the violence and choose to remain home instead, running the risk of infecting their family and neighbours.
"Others are avoiding official border points and choosing to cross illegally through the forests along the border or by boat across Lake Albert".
In the conflict-ridden country as a whole, more than 13 million people need humanitarian aid, the NGOs said.
