Congo's latest Ebola outbreak has spread to a city of more than 1 million people, a worrying shift as the deadly virus risks traveling more easily in densely populated areas.The city is about 150 kilometers from Bikoro, the rural area where the outbreak was announced last week, Congo's Health Minister Oly Ilunga said.One sample proved positive for Ebola, he said. Those exposed to the suspected Ebola cases will for the first time in Congo receive Ebola vaccinations, the health minister said.WHO has sent 4,000 doses of the experimental Ebola vaccine to Congo and said it will send thousands more in the coming days as needed.
