Ebola appears to be under control in the city of Goma in Congo, but it has flared in other parts of the country, where aid workers are combating insecurity and disinformation on social media, the World Health Organization (WHO) said on Aug. 23.

The latest infections include the mysterious case of a woman in her 70s, with no known history of travel or visitors, said Dr. Michael Ryan, head of WHO's health emergencies department.

Nearly 3,000 cases have been confirmed, including 1,965 deaths, since the outbreak began a year ago, the second biggest toll in the disease's history, the latest figures show.
