Another Doctor Succumbs To Ebola, Jane Ruth Aceng Confirms

Minister of Health, Jane Ruth Aceng, has confirmed the death of another a health worker due to Ebola. Ms. Nabisubi Margaret has apparently been battling this disease for 17 days.

This is the second health worker to succumb to this disease in this wave. Dr. Mohammed Ali, a Tanzanian National, passed on on the 1st of October 2022. Six health workers had caught the disease while in duty but now it’s four left battling with Ebola.

“I regret to announce the passing of another Health worker, Ms. Nabisubi Margaret, an anesthetic officer. The 58-year-old succumbed to Ebola at 4.33am this morning at Fort Portal Hospital (JMedic) after battling the disease for 17 days,” Aceng wrote.

Earlier health workers had cried out to the Ministry Of Health to provide more equipment to ensure safety at work as they handle this Ebola outbreak.

“Recently medics were complaining about the lack of PPEs. It’s rather unfortunate to continue losing health workers and yet we know that our workforce is limited and overly stretched. Protect these guys at all costs,” a one Millan Mushabe said.

However, the members of the public have blamed Ministry Of Health for taking the Health workers to Fort Portal.

“I see no valid reason why you transferred those medics to fort from mubende RRH..They are not getting better treatment, you left them to suffer on their own as you are busy keeping silent about all this. Is really announcing the dead your job now,” a one Ronald Musiime.
