Five-yr-old boy with Ebola dies in Uganda

United Nations, Jun 13 (UNI) After being infected with Ebola in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), the five-year-old child who had crossed the border into Uganda on Monday died on Wednesday, according to the country’s Ministry of Health.
This marked the first case of Ebola outside DRC since the epidemic began last August, the deadliest in the country’s history.
On Wednesday, his 50-year-old grandmother and his three-year-old brother were also confirmed infected with the virus. They are now receiving medical care at the Bwera hospital Ebola treatment unit, 5 kilometers from the DRC border.
The family entered the country through Bwera border post and sought medical care for the boy at Kagando hospital. Health workers identified Ebola as a possible cause of illness as he was presenting symptoms of blood vomiting, bloody diarrhoea, muscle pain, headache and more.
To date there is no known transmission of Ebola in Uganda itself, but the country’s Ministry of Health, the UN and partners, are monitoring all possible contacts and the situation is being evaluated across the district with rapid response teams. A ring of vaccinations is scheduled to be carried out for the most at-risk people in the area, including frontline health care workers.
