Ugandan authorities are working to identify people who may have come into contact with a woman who displayed symptoms of Ebola in a Uganda market last week, before dying later in Beni, DR Congo.

The woman, a well-known fishmonger according to a local district health official, vomited at a market in Mpondwe on the Ugandan border last Thursday – before returning to DR Congo and dying from Ebola.

She is said to have crossed into Uganda from DR Congo through an unofficial border point.

WHO and the Uganda Health Ministry have confirmed that the fishmonger died from the virus.

An estimated 600 fishmongers and money changers at the Mpondwe border market are being identified and will be vaccinated.
