Health officials confirmed a new Ebola case Sept. 10. The patient fell ill in early August. His blood test was negative, but his sperm sample tested positive, according to a report from the Center for Infectious Disease and Policy Minneapolis-based University of Minnesota. The patient refused admittance to an Ebola treatment center and instead went to Butembo, a city of nearly 1 million people.
Health officials on Sept. 8 confirmed two other Ebola cases reported in the city of Beni.
