"All must be done to isolate the Ebola cases, especially since there has been a case in Mbandaka city", said Commissioner for Humanitarian Aid and Crisis Management Christos Stylianides, who is also the EU Ebola Coordinator.
Health workers are sprayed with chlorine after leaving an isolation ward with suspected Ebola patients at Bikoro Hospital - the epicenter of the latest Ebola outbreak in the Democratic Republic of Congo.
It said the new death has epidemiologic ties to another case. The other death was a suspected case in Wangata.
Only one of the 25 dead has been confirmed as Ebola, it said, adding that no new health professionals have been contaminated.
The new case of Ebola virus disease has been confirmed in Wangata, one of the three health zones of Mbandaka, a city of almost 1.2 million people in Equateur Province in northwestern Congo, the World Health Organization confirmed Thursday, CNN reported.
It said there has been one new death in Bikoro, where the Ebola outbreak was announced last week and where the first death took place.
Previously, the DRC had successfully managed the Ebola outbreaks but the hemorrhagic fever spread into an urban area is posing a major challenge to combat the outbreak.

There are now 14 confirmed Ebola cases in the Democratic Republic of Congo's latest outbreak as health officials rush to contain the often deadly virus in a city of more than 1 million.
Mbandaka had three suspected cases in addition to the confirmed case.
She warned that the disease can be transmitted via human contact with the body fluids of an infected person and is fatal.
Medical teams rushed to track down anyone thought to have had contact with infected people, while the World Health Organization continued shipping thousands of doses of an experimental vaccine.
The Commission noted that the allocated funding would "ensure deployment of relevant surge capacity to the affected areas, surveillance and contact tracing of Ebola victims as well as active case finding for early detection of those infected".
Those exposed will for the first time in Congo receive Ebola vaccinations, the health minister said. It says no worldwide travel restrictions are in place. Under the supervision are already more than five hundred people.
There is no licensed drug to treat or prevent Ebola, although an experimental vaccine arrived in the DRC on Wednesday and has been cleared for use by the Kinshasa government.
