Ebola turns deadly in Uganda, claims third member of family



Uganda bans public gatherings in Kasese district amid Ebola fears: Uganda has banned public gatherings in western Kasese district as authorities try to contain an Ebola outbreak which has killed two people in the country days after the virus spread from the neighbouring Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC).
A 50-year-old woman infected with Ebola died at Bwera Hospital in western Uganda on Thursday, a day after her five-year-old grandson died of the disease.

Both had recently attended a funeral in DRC, where the boy’s grandfather had also succumbed to the virus.
