Three Congolese doctors arrested in connection with WHO official's death

Congolese interim health minister Pierre

Travel restrictions are part of measures taken by Rwandan and Congolese health officials who met in Rwanda.

The two ministers discussed common mechanisms for the prevention and management of Ebola virus, including surveillance, according to the communique.

The advisory was released by the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) following the declaration of EVD as a Public Health Emergency of International Concern by the World Health Organization (WHO).

A year-long Ebola outbreak in eastern Democratic Republic of Congo has killed at least 1,800, the second biggest toll ever, and efforts to contain the virus have been hobbled by militia violence and some local resistance to outside interference.

"Tight scrutiny of Ebola symptoms on people travelling in and out of DRC will continue till further notice. They say the border is open, but just look". Congo's government condemned Rwanda's decision to close the border before it was reopened hours later.


The wife and 1-year-old daughter of the city's first Ebola victim, a gold miner, later tested positive for the disease, the first transmission of the virus inside the densely populated crossroads city.

Mulala said the health personnel on the DRC side were also screening travelers and various transporters of goods into and outside that country.

Three Congolese medics were arrested Wednesday in the murder of a Cameroonian doctor who was treating Ebola patients in the Democratic Republic of Congo, prosecutors revealed.

The WHO described Mouzoko as "passionate" and "always ready to go where people would need his help most", and said he was a committed professional who helped train hundreds in the medical field.
