Chinese Company Abandons Work Over Ebola Scare
By 5 hours 45 minutes ago
This was after one patient in Masha, Isingiro died mysteriously last week, with residents suspecting Ebola was the cause of her death.
But when her blood was taken to Entebbe Virus Research Institute, it was found negative of the Ebola virus but this has not convinced the Chinese to get back to work.
Road construction trucks on the Isingiro road still lie idle where they are being guarded by private security personnel.
The construction works on Mbarara-Isingiro road started early this year after residents went on strike complaining about the deteriorating state of the murram road to the Uganda-Tanzania border.
The Ministry of Health on Tuesday started the reintegration of suspected patients into their communities after weeks of treatment and monitoring.
Health experts have also managed to successfully treat and save the lives of four Ebola patients while 3 have died since the breakout of the epidemic was confirmed late last month.
The Ministry of Health surveillance team is following up to 248 people who got in contact with the dead and suspects. http://www.chimpreports.com/index.php/people/health/5431-chinese-company-abandons-work-over-ebola-scare.html
