The Uganda Medical Association (UMA) president, Dr Samuel Oledo, has recommended that stringent measures including a lockdown be considered for Kampala to contain the spread of the Ebola virus.

This comes at a time when Ebola cases in greater Kampala have risen to 15 in the last 48 hours.

Currently, Uganda has 90 cumulative cases with 28 active cases on admission and 28 lives lost.

Meanwhile, the districts of Mubende and Kassanda are under a 21-day lockdown.

He, however, commended the government for treating health workers who have contracted Ebola.

At least eight health workers have contracted the viral disease, but two have died.
