Rwanda has shut its frontier with Ebola-hit Democratic Republic of Congo after a third case of the deadly virus was detected in the border city of Goma, the Congolese presidency said Thursday.
In a statement, it said there had been a “unilateral decision by the Rwandan authorities” that affected citizens from both countries who had to cross the border for their work.
A second case of Ebola was detected on Tuesday in the eastern Congolese city of Goma, a Congolese health official said, increasing fears the virus could establish a foothold in the densely populated area close to the Rwandan border.
