Uganda Declares Outbreak Of Rare Ebola Species After Six “Suspicious Deaths”
An Ebola outbreak has officially been declared in Uganda after a person tested positive for the Sudan species of the virus, the World Health Organization (WHO) said on Tuesday. Worryingly, it's uncertain whether the existing Ebola vaccines will work against this rarer species of the virus.
The 24-year-old tested positive for the Sudan ebolavirus in Mubende district in the Central Region of Uganda. On top of this single confirmed case, eight suspected cases are currently receiving care in a health facility.
Around half the people who contract the disease die, although case fatality rates for the Sudan species have varied from 41 percent to 100 percent in different outbreaks. While effective Ebola vaccines have been developed in recent years, they have only proved effective against the more common Zaire species. It is unclear how well they performed against the Sudan species.
and yes, they've already got it manufactured, lined up and ready to go.
my 2 cents? you dont need it. but i'm not you and this isn't medical advice.
