Health teams at the isolation facility in Mubende Regional Referral Hospital at the weekend discharged two people who had been infected with Ebola.

During their release, the health minister Dr. Jane Ruth Aceng said the two should be ambassadors at their respective areas of residence so that Ebola can be cured.

”We are grateful to the health teams,” Dr Aceng, added.

She was in the company of the World Health Organisation (WHO) country representative, Dr Yonas Tegegn Woldemariam, and health partners.

Dr Paskar Apiyo, a consultant physician attached to Gulu Hospital but currently heading the Mubende team, said the duo had undergone intensive treatment after their sample tests turned out positive.

“We are happy that after the treatment, the two had their respective samples tested and proved negative. For the last three days, they have shown no signs and symptoms and are able to walk and do normal work,” Dr Apiyo said.
