Ebola Cases Continue To Rise In Kampala, MOH Confirms

The Ministry Of Health has confirmed more Ebola cases in Kampala. These cases were reported by the Minister of Health, Dr. Jane Ruth Aceng. She says the confirmed cases were contacts of l the fatal case of Kasanda District. In only 48 hours, 14 cases have been confirmed.

“Yesterday 23rd Oct 2022, nine (9) individuals were confirmed positive for #Ebola in Greater Kampala region bringing the total number of cases to 14 in the last 48 hours. The 9 cases are contacts of the fatal case who came from Kassanda district and passed on in Mulago Hospital.”

“7 family members are from Masanafu and 1 health worker who managed him in a private clinic together with his wife from Seguku. Fellow Ugandans, let’s be vigilant. Report yourself if you have had contact or know of a person who has had contact. Lets cooperate to end Ebola,” Aceng added.

The last time the president addressed the nation about Ebola. He prohibited movement in areas of Mubende and Kassanda. This was because of the increasing transmission in these areas. With this number in Kampala, the question is what next? However, the argument of some people is the lack of information about Ebola from the MOH given the times Ebola has attacked the country.

“Before and after reporting, what is the treatment protocol for Ebola, apart from isolation? Why is there no publicly available information about how to treat it like it is with Covid? Ebola has been around long enough for this information to be made available.Why the lack of info,” a one Acaye Kerunen said.
