Ebola Strikes in Uganda Again

Reports from Uganda indicate that Ebola has struck again in the district of Mubende about 4hours from the capital Kampala.

A Mubende district health officer (DHO), Dr. Wilson Mubiru said two five-year-old children were admitted on Thursday night while vomiting blood – a symptom that was hurriedly linked to Ebola.

Earlier local reports had put the number of patients admitted at the hospital to four and that three had died on spot.

The hospitalised children are from different families.
