Uganda's Yoweri Museveni warns of Ebola threat

Uganda's President Yoweri Museveni has called on people to avoid physical contact, after the deadly Ebola virus spread to the capital, Kampala.

"Be vigilant - avoid shaking of hands that can cause contact through sweat," Mr Museveni said.

"Do not take on burying somebody who has died from symptoms that look like Ebola. Instead call health workers because they know how to do it.

"Avoid promiscuity because this sickness can also go through sex," Mr Museveni added.

6 more Ugandans admitted to hospital with possible Ebola

A Ugandan health official says six more patients suspected to have Ebola have been admitted to the hospital in western Uganda.

Stephen Bayaruhanga, health secretary of the affected Kibaale district, said Monday that possible cases of Ebola, at first concentrated in a single village, are now being reported in more villages.

If the six new cases are confirmed as Ebola, it would bring to 26 the number of Ugandans infected with the virus this month. At least 14 people have died.

Maybe not. I'm thinking the patient was sent to the capital from elsewhere.

Good question.

RE: Ugandan president bans all physical contact after 2 Ebola cases reported in capital
The confirmation of Ebola's presence in the area has spread anxiety among sick villagers, who are refusing to go the hospital for fear they don't have Ebola and will contract it there. All suspected Ebola patients have been isolated at one hospital where patients admitted with other illnesses fled after Ebola was announced. Only the hospital's maternity ward still has patients, officials said, highlighting the deadly reputation of Ebola in a country where the authorities do not always respond quickly and effectively to emergencies and disasters.

Barnabas Tinkasimire, a lawmaker from the area, said that some nurses refused to look after Ebola patients after one clinical officer died and another was taken ill.

"They are saying, `We can't remain here if there is no sufficient allowance,'" Tinkasimire said of medical officers handling Ebola cases.

The lawmaker said the government's response so far has been poor and that it would have been worse without the technical support of organizations such as the World Health Organization and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

"It took long for the government to respond, and up to now many people don't know how to guard against Ebola. We need sensitization," he said.

RE: Ugandan president bans all physical contact after 2 Ebola cases reported in capital
Seven doctors and 13 health workers at Mulago Hospital are in quarantine after "at least one or two cases" were taken there, with one later dying, he said.

The latest outbreak started in Uganda's western Kibale district, around 200 kilometres (125 miles) from Kampala, and around 50 kilometres from the border with Democratic Republic of Congo.

The fatal case in Kampala was a health worker who "had attended to the dead at Kagadi hospital" in Kibale, Health Minister Christine Ondoa told reporters.

She is believed to have travelled independently to Kampala -- possibly on public transport -- after her three-month old baby died, Ondoa added.
Results of tests were still awaited, but it is "presumed" she died of Ebola, said Dennis Lwamafa, Uganda's commissioner for disease control.

"I appeal to you to first of all report all cases which appear to be like Ebola, and these are high fever, vomiting, sometimes diarrhoea, and with bleeding," Museveni added.

"When you handle this case well you can eliminate Ebola quickly."

According to experts, despite being extremely virulent the disease is containable because it kills its victims faster than it can spread to new ones.

Uganda: Ebola outbreak - Information Bulletin n° 2

The situation: According to the Ministry of Health of Uganda, the first case of Ebola was reported in Kagadi hospital on July 7, 2012 and since then, there have been 27 confirmed cases in total, the last two new cases within the last 48 hours.

As of this morning (July 30th, 2012), there are 7 patients currently admitted within the isolation facility of Kagadi Hospital, 5 of which are new admissions, all with epidemiological linkages to previous probable cases/deaths. So far, there has been 14 deaths (9 from the same family where the index case so far seems to have come from).

There are fears that the disease may have spread beyond Kibaale District. A patient who escaped the isolation ward two days ago has been retrieved and re-admitted. Also according to the same ministry, 7 samples have been collected (4 from new cases and 3 from convalescent cases) and have been shipped to the national laboratory at Uganda Virus Research Institute in Entebbe.

One of the confirmed cases died in Mulago Hospital, prompting follow-up of all the health workers and other people who came into contact with that particular patient – none of them has so far come up with the disease so far.

The symptoms presented by people affected by this particular outbreak of Ebola are somewhat different from those of the past (for example, there was no haemorrhage in most cases), which made some people to think initially that the outbreak was cholera, another disease that is also currently quite active in the area.

There is an urgent need for communication/social mobilization capacity to strengthen public information and social mobilization. At the moment, follow-up is still not adequate. There is a serious need for an adequate surveillance mechanism and resources, which could allow for a proper follow-up of all the contact cases for 21 days. The extent of the epidemic is still unknown, therefore the epidemic is not contained. There is a high demand of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and medical supplies – demands that currently are being met; yet additional stock may be required.
