The Ugandan Ministry of Health is releasing video updates on the Ebola outbreak via YouTube. In the update from August 7, the Health Service Commissioner, Dr. Anthony K. Mbyone confirms that the death count remains at 16. Within the last 24 hours, there is one new suspected case.
Meanwhile, of the 398 people identified to have had contact with suspected Ebola cases, 294 are being closely monitored. Because Ebola can have an incubation period of up to 21 days, the 294 individuals will be monitored for 21 days to ensure that there is no infection.
In a separate report, the WHO Regional Office for Africa clarifies that of the 398 contact cases, 84 have already been observed for 21 days. The remaining cases are under “active follow up.” Further, the Regional Office states that there has been no expansion of the outbreak beyond Kibaale district.
