The World Health Organization (WHO) has summoned health experts to an emergency meeting to discuss the risk of the dreaded Ebola virus spreading internationally from the Democratic Republic of the Congo.

WHO’s decision is coming shortly after multiple cases of Ebola virus was discovered in Mbandaka, a densely populated city, that in connected to several other towns in the country, which in turn sparked fears of it spreading downstream to the capital Kinshasa or to other countries.

According to BBC Africa, WHO is preparing to distribute an experimental vaccine in the affected regions in the Democratic Republic of Congo. The recent Ebola case is the ninth outbreak to hit the Democratic Republic of Congo since the disease was identified over 40 years ago.
