Via World Stage Group, a report from the News Agency of Nigeria: Ebola outbreak: Uganda isolates suspected case at Entebbe International Airport. Excerpt:
A passenger travelling from the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) en-route to Kenya has been isolated at Uganda’s Entebbe International Airport, as Ebola tests are carried out.
Sarah Opendi, Uganda’s minister of state in charge of general duties, told Xinhua by telephone on Saturday that although the male passenger has not developed other Ebola signs, he has got a fever and high temperature.
“He is now in an isolation ward at Entebbe hospital. Blood samples have been taken to the Uganda Virus Research Institute,” Opendi said.
She said available information shows that the passenger lost his wife three weeks ago, although the cause of death is not yet known.
Opendi said medical officers at the airport are screening all passengers coming into the country especially those from neighboring DRC.
