Uganda bans public gatherings in Kasese district amid Ebola fears
It has been reported that 2 people including a 5-year-old boy died of Ebola in Uganda. This has prompted the World Health Organization to call for an emergency meeting. The virus has spread since an outbreak began last year in the neighboring Democratic Republic of Congo.
This development has led to the ban of public gatherings and shaking of hands while greeting in the affected areas by the authorities.
