The Baltimore Sun is reporting: KAMPALA, Uganda — Health workers, including two physicians, are among the dead in an Ebola outbreak in Uganda, spreading fear among doctors and nurses needed to help treat victims of the highly contagious disease, officials said. Doctors and nurses did not at first know what they were facing, so failed to protect themselves, according to a lawmaker representing the western region at the center of the outbreak. Experts say the Ebola subtype that sparked the outbreak is new and the classic Ebola symptoms were not always present, slowing diagnosis. According to the Ministry of Health’s latest figures, Bundibugyo has 93 suspected cases of Ebola, among them 22 deaths. Four health workers were among the dead in an outbreak that began August 20. The disease was not confirmed as Ebola until November 29.
