#Marburg Clarification on Patient Needed

Clarification is requested:  Is she isolated?  Is she confirmed?

From the Ministry of Health Statement:

The Ministry of Health would also wish to clarify on media reports that one of its officers, Dr. Sheila Ndyanabangi, the head of the Mental Health Unit Division, had contracted Marburg and had been isolated.
Dr. Ndyanabangi has not been isolated but has been advised to exercise social distancing. She is one of the contacts who are being monitored. She has not developed any signs or symptoms of the disease and therefore cannot be isolated from the community. She is due to complete the 21 days of observation.
I once again urge the public to take the following measures to avert the spread of the disease.
