With that, the Ebola offense is the worst ever hit in the Central African country.
The virus has so far killed about 198 people. Work on stopping the virus has been hampered by armed groups fighting for control east of the country where the outbreak began. Local reluctance has also prevented the work of a healthcare worker.
However, authorities have so far vaccinated more than 27,000 people against the virus that comes into contact with the body's fluid with the infected person.
