Ebola crisis spreads to Goma after victim slipped through three checkpoints unnoticed

EBOLA’s first victim in Congo’s largest city managed to slip through three virus checkpoints, health chiefs have admitted, sparking fears the virus could spread further afield.

Officials confirmed the disease had now reached Goma, a lakeside city of roughly one million people, which lies on the border with Rwanda. Goma is more than 220 miles south of where Ebola was first detected a year ago and is the largest city to be affected by the outbreak. So far Congo has seen more than 2,500 people infected by the disease and nearly 1,700 killed.
