Doctor Henry Bosa from Uganda's Ministry of Health said at a press conference with the World Health Organization (WHO) that it is difficult to predict when the epidemic will end.

Stating that in the 7th week of the epidemic, the number of cases increased to 131 and the number of those who lost their lives to 48, Bosa stated that 43 of the patients who were treated had regained their health.

The epidemic, which the African Center for Disease Prevention and Control said is still under control, has spread to different parts of the country.

The Ebola virus was first detected in a 24-year-old person on September 19 this year in Uganda.


In Uganda, Ebola killed hundreds of people in the early 2000s, and finally 17 people in 2012.

Ebola, which causes a type of hemorrhagic fever, first appeared in 1976 in simultaneous outbreaks in the Sudanese cities of Nzara and the Democratic Republic of the Congo (KDC) Yambuku cities.

The disease was named after this river because the epidemic in KDC started in a village near the Ebola River.

Ebola had spread in West Africa in December 2013. In the epidemic that occurred in Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone in 2014-2017, 30 thousand people were infected with the virus, and more than 11 thousand of the patients died.
