Ebola virus spreading like wildfire in Uganda, kissing and physical contact banned

NEIGHBORING RWANDA AND KENYA ON FULL ALERT

A wildfire of Ebola virus has been ravaging Uganda and has already killed 14 people with a new death in the capital of Kampala.

People fled hospitals in a frenzy when they found out patients with Ebola were there.

Medical workers in hospitals are even being quarantined because of fear of spreading the virus.

Contracting Ebola is not good. Violent bleeding and hemorrhaging through bodily orifices commences and death comes quickly.

There is no cure for the disease and it kills 90% of those who contact it. It is thought to be contracted from infected animals.

The first case appeared in 1976 in the Congo.

This is the third outbreak of Ebola in Uganda since 2000 when 224 people were killed. At least 42 people were killed in another outbreak in 2007, and there was a single confirmed case in 2011.
