This emergency provision is the highest level of alarm the W.H.O can sound and has only been used four times previously.
WHO Director-General (Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus) says he has accepted recommendations there should be no restrictions on travel or trade, and no entry screening of passengers at ports or airports outside the immediate region.
More than 2,500 people have been infected and two-thirds of them have died in DR Congo.
And about 12 new cases are being reported every day.
