"It is the first time we have a confirmed case and contacts in an area of high insecurity", said Dr. Peter Salama, WHO's deputy director-general for emergency preparedness and response. The doctor is among 14 confirmed or probable cases among health workers.

Congo is struggling to curb the worst eruption of the disease in a decade in a region prone to attacks by militias and sheltering more than a million displaced people fleeing conflict.
About 500 healthcare workers have been vaccinated against Ebola, as have 600 children, Salama said.

Of 59 reported deaths, 32 have been confirmed as Ebola, according to the health ministry.
