An outbreak of Ebola in Uganda has now reached the capital of Kampala. The deadly virus, which kills nine out of 10 people who become infected, has claimed 14 lives in the country already, and many others are feared to be carrying the disease. In a televised warning, Yoweri Museveni, Uganda's president, told people to avoid those who appeared to have Ebola symptoms, which include fever, headaches, diarrhea, and vomiting. "When you contact each other physically, then Ebola spreads. Avoid shaking of hands.... Do not take on burying somebody who has died from symptoms which look like Ebola," he said.
