GENEVA (Reuters) – The World Health Organization confirmed that the Ebola outbreak in the Democratic Republic of Congo was a "public health emergency of international concern", saying that there was a recent risk of its spread in the city of Goma and Uganda. .

The WHO chief executive, Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, said he accepted recommendations from a committee of international experts who stressed that there would be no restrictions on travel or trade, and the non-direct entry of passengers at ports or airports outside the region.
