The Ministry of Health in Uganda has advised people traveling to the Democratic Republic of Congo to do so only when necessary. The directive comes after thirteen confirmed deaths in the Democratic Republic of Congo due to Ebola Virus Disease were reported. Other reports put the figures as low as two.
DRC is the 5th African Country to record an outbreak of the deadly disease after Sierra Leone, Guinea, Liberia and Nigeria in West Africa where over one thousand four hundred people have died since March.
