The mysterious virus causing deaths in Uganda has now been confirmed as Ebola:

The deadly Ebola virus has killed 14 people in western Uganda this month, Ugandan health officials said on Saturday, ending weeks of speculation about the cause of a strange disease that had many people fleeing their homes.

The officials and a World Health Organization representative told a news conference in Kampala Saturday that there is “an outbreak of Ebola” in Uganda.

This news was surfacing in the “Outbreak” live stream of the Covert Contact Epidemics Monitor. However, this is a significant event so the “Flu” live stream has temporarily been replace by one monitoring Ebola.

If the outbreak worsens a dedicated monitor will likely be added for all subscribers.
