Update on Uganda Ebola

The Uganda Ministry of Health has its work cut out this month. From the front page of the December 5th Daily Monitor:

AS the country grapples with the deadly Ebola outbreak in western Uganda, medics are struggling to contain a rising spate of meningitis and bubonic plague in West Nile [district], cholera in Hoima and Buliisa [districts], and yellow fever in the northern district of Kitgum.

Depending on the source, 19 to 21 deaths, including two doctors, have been attributed to the latest Ebola outbreak. No news yet on results from the two suspected cases in Mbarara and not much new found on HealthMap. Otherwise, life continues as normal here. At the University chapel across the road from our place, there’s a wedding on the lawn. Great weather for a wedding today. The academic term ends this week. Mbarara University students are in exams.
