An Ebola patient has died after bringing the disease to the Democratic Republic of Congo's (DRC) eastern city of Goma, the nation's government has confirmed.
The unnamed patient, 46, became infected while visiting the town of Butembo, which has been an epicentre in the ongoing outbreak.
The DRC's health ministry claims the man took a bus the 200km (124 mile) journey from Butembo to Goma last week. The patient, who was a priest, died while travelling back for treatment.

coming to a border near you
Love you Ebola chan !
Who would want Ebola to spread ? Deep State ? Nothing to see here. Whats on TV ? /s
Who would want Ebola to spread ?
Climate change activists.
This is why quarantines are supposed to be a thing.
Yep. Infuriating. He probably didn't know he was sick when he boarded the bus, which is why travel is restricted in the hot zone. And all it takes is one.
It won’t be long before somebody hops on a plane and spreads it to other passengers, each of whom will have a connecting flight somewhere...
Already happened here and we were lucky
Read THE HOT ZONE and you will be very afraid
Ebola has spread to the Congolese city of Goma, which has a population of more than a million people,
as the virus continues to devastate the region.
The victim is a pastor who had arrived in the city by bus after visiting Butembo,
a town around 200miles (320km) north in the centre of the outbreak.
This outbreak now threatens the possibility to spread
outside what was previously known as the "Hot Zone".

Post to me or FReep mail to be on/off the Bring Out Your Dead ping list.
The purpose of the Bring Out Your Dead ping list (formerly the Ebola ping list) is very early warning of emerging pandemics, as such it has a high false positive rate.
So far the false positive rate is 100%.
At some point we may well have a high mortality pandemic, and likely as not the Bring Out Your Dead threads will miss the beginning entirely.
*sigh* Such is life, and death...
If a quarantine saves just one child's life, it's worth it.
Very bad. Starting to see the story on Twitter.
At which point Goma should be quarantined, especially the airport.
Any aircraft that try to take off should be shot down.
The article says he was returning to Goma for treatment, so who knows.
Obama brought them here. Didn’t spread.
Ebola nurse Kaci Hickox broke quarantine to go out for pizza. Didn’t spread.
Now we’ve got Congolese rushing the southern border. Third times the charm?
I personally think these folks should be ejected from the USA with a trebuchet, but in a way, can you really blame them for coming here? Come to the USA, or stay in an area of deadly conflict and strife, with the possibility of contracting a disease so awful, that you end up perpetually vomiting and soiling your pants as your insides turn to mush. Extremely painful as well, I understand.
Devil in the freezer is good as well
