Via The New Vision: Uganda has capacity to contain Ebola - Mbabazi. Excerpt:
Uganda now has the capacity to manage future Ebola outbreaks, the prime minister, Amama Mbabazi has said.
“Uganda has suffered three previous outbreaks of Ebola and we've built reasonable capacity to manage it. Help from external partners has arrived,” Mbabazi said.
Mbabazi however said vigilance must be maintained until the lifespan of the disease of 21 days has been completed.
He was responding to questions this morning on Twitter about Ebola, the deadly haemorrhagic fever that was first reported in Kibaale District, over 200km west of Kampala last Saturday.
