Three Killed in New Ebola Outbreak

Uganda’s health minister said on Thursday that at least three people have been killed in a new outbreak of the deadly Ebola virus. Two of those killed were members of the same family in the Luwero district, Health Minister Christine Ondoa said. Ondoa also said that five other cases are being monitored, including two people at an isolation facility at Mulago Hospital in Kampala. The deaths come just one month after health officials reported an outbreak of the Marburg virus, a cousin of the Ebola virus, which killed three people.
