The global friendly game, scheduled for May 28 in Port Harcourt, between Nigeria and DR Congo could called off as a result of a fresh outbreak of Ebola in the central African country.
Following the fresh outbreak of the deadly Ebola Virus Disease (EVD) in the Democratic Republic of Congo, screening and surveillance activities have been intensified at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport (MMIA), Lagos, checks by Daily Trust have shown.
"This situation worries us and requires a very immediate and energetic response", he said at a news conference. The deadliest outbreak of the disease was in 2014 when 11,315 people died and over 28,000 cases were reported.
Ngalebato says that among the new suspected cases is a woman from Ikoko Impenge, the epicenter of the outbreak some 30km from Bikoro.
The cases could be linked to a policeman in the Bikoro health zone who presented symptoms of hemorrhagic fever and died in December, Muyembe said.
Two subjects tested positive in an area around the northwestern part of the country, but there are at least 21 suspected cases elsewhere.
Serge Ngaleto, the director of Bikoro's main hospital, told Reuters: 'After contact, the nurses began showing signs...we have isolated them'.
Congo's long experience of Ebola and its vast, remote geography mean outbreaks are often localised and relatively easy to isolate and snuff out.
Five samples were collected from hospitalized patients, three from Ikoko-Impenge and two from Bikoro.
The overall risk at the regional level is considered moderate because of the proximity to the Congo river, which links with both the capitals of the Republic of the Congo and the Central African Republic.
Nigeria have already taken measures to stop the disease from entering the country through its border, by tightening security at several entry points. Similar measures helped Africa's most populous country contain the virus during the West African epidemic that began in 2013.
Ebola is best known and most feared for the internal and external bleeding it can cause in its victims, owing to damage done to blood vessels.
