Lets hope this latest outbreak doesnt get out of Uganda because this is a killer.... no cure!!
So far killed 14 with another 6 infected but where were these infected?
Where have they been?
Who have they seen? etc...
I've seen the Film with Hoffman.... its not a nice way to die.... all i can say is I hope its kept under control!!
some of the story:
The deadly Ebola virus has killed 14 people in western Uganda this month, health officials have confirmed.
The announcement ends weeks of speculation about the cause of a strange disease that had many people fleeing their homes - officials had previously
dismissed the suggestion of Ebola as "merely a rumour".
The officials and a World Health Organisation representative confirmed the report at a news conference in the country's capital, Kampala.
"Laboratory investigations done at the Uganda Virus Research Institute...have confirmed that the strange disease reported in Kibaale is indeed Ebola
hemorrhagic fever," the two groups said in a joint statement.
This virus scares the crap out of me and so did that movie!
I hope this doesn't get out....
Also after all these years how can they NOT have a cure for it or a vaccine? Seems like they would rather it spread to kill off groups of people.
It's a horrible way to die and nobody should have to go thru a death like that.
