Three cases of Ebola have been confirmed in Uganda; a boy has died. Uganda is confident it can contain the virus using an Ebola vaccine, but experts fear that there could be more undetected cases.
The WHO has not declared the current outbreak an international emergency. But neighboring countries considered at risk have upped their preventative measures after the virus spread to Uganda earlier this week.
The daily number of new Ebola cases has tripled in recent months, according to aid organizations. Local distrust and armed groups have hampered a response to the world's second-largest Ebola epidemic.
International aid organizations are warning that the Ebola outbreak in DR Congo could worsen in the face of instability, public distrust and a critical shortfall in funds to contain the deadly virus.
