“In the past 24 hours, (…) three new deaths have been recorded,” assured the Ministry of Health in a press release. All the deaths were recorded in Mubende district, about 150 kilometers west of the capital Kampala.

Previous

Uganda has previously experienced outbreaks of Ebola, a disease that has claimed thousands of lives across Africa since its discovery in 1976 in neighboring Democratic Republic of Congo.

The last cases recorded in the country date from 2019, with at least five deaths, after the “virus was imported from the DRC which was fighting against a major epidemic in its north-eastern region” according to the WHO. In a previous outbreak in 2000, 200 people died.

Also in DRC

A case of Ebola was also reported in August in the Congolese province of North Kivu, bordering Rwanda and Uganda, less than six weeks after an outbreak in eastern DRC – the 14th in the country’s history – had been declared complete.

Ebola virus disease is often fatal, but vaccines and treatments now exist against this hemorrhagic fever, which is transmitted to humans by infected representatives of other species.

Human transmission is through body fluids, with the main symptoms being fever, vomiting, bleeding and diarrhoea. Infected people only become contagious after the onset of symptoms, after an incubation period ranging from 2 to 21 days.

The disease has six different strains, three of which (Bundibugyo, Sudan, Zaire) have already caused major epidemics.
