"Due to the recent developments related to Ebola in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) the Ministry, with guidance from the World Health Organisation (WHO) continues to take measures to prepare, prevent, detect and treat any Ebola case that could develop in the country", says the Ministry's publicist Joshua Malango. This outbreak is occurring in an active conflict zone which makes an effective response far more complicated because of insecurity, including armed attacks on health workers and facilities, and population displacement.
So far, the current outbreak in the DRC has reached the second largest ever recorded, tallying almost 2,700 cases and over 1,800 deaths since it was declared August 1, 2018.
More than 1,600 deaths from the Ebola virus have been reported since the outbreak was first declared on August 1, 2018 and, during the first seven months of the epidemic (August 2018 to March 2019), over 1,000 confirmed and probable cases were declared.
"Ebola passes from mother to child, husband to wife, patient to caregiver, from the dead body of a victim to the mourning relative", the joint statement said, adding that it is primarily a health crisis, but one that also critically impacts how people care for their family, view their neighbours and interact with their community.
An Ebola response official said the third confirmed case was the one-year-old daughter of the second Goma patient, a father of 10 who had died at the same centre earlier in the week.
World Health Organization (WHO) officials have feared Ebola's arrival in the city for months.
The patient died Wednesday, around 26 hours after being admitted to an MSF-supported Ebola treatment center, the organization said on Twitter.
"The risk of national #Ebola spread is high".

Joseph Bakisula, 32, said: "This new death proves that Ebola was already in Goma".
"Sad news coming from Goma, DRC - the second Ebola case has been confirmed".
Muyembe has said there appears to be no link between the case and the one in Goma that was announced 2½ weeks ago. Officials have also provided additional infection control training to health centers and reinforced border screenings and airport monitoring.
Health officials believe the patient, a man, is not connected to the first case in Goma.
"At this time we have no specific information regarding a specific exposure to a known Ebola case", he said.
Scientists think the virus initially infected humans through close contact with an infected animal, such as a bat, and then the virus spread from person to person.
Later on Wednesday Aruna Abedi, the chief Ebola coordinator in the North Kivu province - which has borne the brunt of the outbreak since it began on August 1 a year ago - said a third person had tested positive for the disease.
