#Marburg Virus: Mulago Hospital Admits A Confirmed Couple

The Health Minister Dr Christine Ondoa reveals Monday a couple from western Uganda tested positive to the contagious and deadly Marburg disease

The patients are being isolated at Mulago Referral Hospital, bringing to 12 the number of Marburg cases in the country.
Ondoa clarifies the patients used a private car from the west and were subsequently joined by other friends who are suspected to have contracted the disease as well.
However, sources in the Ministry of Health separately tell this website that the couple travelled by bus to Kampala but authorities are reluctant to reveal these details simply not to upset the nation.
