The first case was a 26-year-old electrician from Beni, a town that has been the epicentre of the outbreak for most of its duration. On Saturday the country also registered another death of an 11- -months-old baby girl who succumbed to the disease.
This is more than twice the number of people who have been killed by the Ebola virus in the same country over the last one year. According to the World Health Organization (WHO) measles, which has gripped all provinces in the country, is the world's largest and fastest-moving epidemic.
Olivier Nduhungirehe, the Rwanda State Minister in Charge of East African Community, confirmed that Rwanda had closed its Rubavu border after a third case of Ebola was reported in the border town of Goma, DR Congo.
