Mysterious, deadly disease emerges in Uganda

People in the small, landlocked African nation of Uganda have been dying mysteriously, and scientists and health professionals don’t yet know what’s been killing them:

Ugandan health officials say they are working
“around the clock” with international health experts to identify a
mysterious disease that has killed at least 38 people in the north of
the country.


All of the fatalities have been adult men, and a total of 91 people had contracted the disease as of Dec. 8.

Symptoms include headache, fever and vomiting blood, but Ebola and bubonic plague have so far been ruled out as the cause.

Let’s hope that whatever this is, it doesn’t spread. Read more here.
