More on Ebola

The outbreak of Ebola in western Uganda continues. Yesterday, another man died, making the total fatality rate 30 people out of the known 116 who have been infected. The epicenter of the outbreak is a district called Bundibubyo, which has a population of more than 250,000 people. Tests have confirmed that the strain of Ebola in circulation is serotypically distinct from previously identified serotypes such as Ebola Zaire, Cote d’Ivoire, Reston, etc.
