Another health worker has succumbed to the Ebola Virus Disease (EVD). Health minister Dr. Jane Aceng has identified the deceased as Margaret Nabisubi, an anesthetic officer.
She says the 58-year-old succumbed to Ebola at 4:33 am at Fort Portal Hospital (JMedic) after battling the disease for 17 days.
Nabisubi is the 4th health worker that the country has lost to the current Ebola outbreak, after a probable case of a midwife, Tanzanian trainee doctor Mohamad Ali, and a health assistant in Kagadi district.
This brings the total number of Ebola deaths to 10 out of the 43 confirmed cases since the outbreak was announced.
