Source: (MSF Head office Kansanga Uganda, 14 Jun. 2019). Dr. Charles Olara the director in charge of health services at the ministry of health in Kampala, has said they will carry out ring vaccinations of the contacts of the Ebola victims and other non-vaccinated frontline health workers. Uganda government says it can handle Ebola and so far there are no restrictions to movement and business at the border. (New Vision, Pg. 1 and 4, Thur. 13 Jun. 2019).
So... are these people in quarantine, or were they just sent out into the general population and told to report themselves if they decide they have ebola and want to be sent to an ebola camp?

They were sent back over to the DRC. The 90+ people they suspect came into contact with them are being treated with some kind of preventative drug and monitored i believe.

I think I posted that in one of my previous posts. Would have to go back and read through.

Monitored how, though? From experience with Ebola so far, that usually means we send them off to do whatever they want with instructions to call and report themselves if they think they've got Ebola. Hell, we found one on a cross-country flight and another on a cruise ship at one point when we decided they might have it, and that's with the US version of 'monitored.'

Not mine line of work bro! I cannot answer your question.

I work in security not virus containment. MSF or Dr.'s w/o Borders is just a simple client of mine, among some other NGO and USG organizations. I am only passing along what is being reported on the ground.

Kenya has a suspected case. Nope.

It did start to mobilize resources though.

And this poses a problem for the continued response efforts from the WHO...

Quote:
WHO’s funding needs for the response are US$98 million, of which US$44 million have been received, leaving a gap of US$54 million. The funding shortfall is immediate and critical: if the funds are not received, WHO will be unable to sustain the response at the current scale. Other partners are also facing shortfalls that have led some to reduce or stop operations. The response risks being driven by decisions related to financial capacity rather than operational needs.

And this is why it will not go away any time soon

Quote:
Residents of Kericho jammed the county referral hospital, where a suspected case of the deadly Ebola virus was reported.

Instead of avoiding the hospital, where a woman had been quarantined after showing symptoms similar to those exhibited by Ebola patients, curious residents rushed to the hospital eager to see the patient.

They jammed the hospital's parking space, pushing and shoving to catch of glimpse of the patient, oblivious of the fact that Ebola can easily be spread through contact.

Local update:

1. Security Situation Report (SSR)
a. MINISTRY OF HEALTH IS IN NEED OF 7.5 MILLION DOLLARS FOR EBOLA OUTBREAK REPONSE: The Ministry of Health is in need of $7.5million (about Shs27.8b) to respond to the Ebola outbreak in the country, which has since claimed three people from Congo who were at the border in Uganda. Mr. Emmanuel Ainebyoona, the senior ministry spokesperson, said the money is only enough to facilitate the western district of Kasese, where the haemorrhagic fever was confirmed early this month and not the whole country. By press time, Uganda had not registered any new confirmed Ebola Virus Disease (EVD) case in Kasese or any other area, although there are medical staff contacts to the confirmed Ebola cases in Kagando and Bwera, who are being followed up daily.

We've kinda gone from a kitchen fire to a fully engulfed house, to the neighbor's house catching fire, and now we've reached that part where embers are blowing everywhere and the entire city block is on fire, residents are running out of their houses on fire and diving into their neighbor's homes, and there's not enough fire engines to deal with them all so you're trying to figure out if you should just order a mass evacuation and try to get everyone in the city to run.

Quarantine the city, and keep the infected inside the cage; it will die out, or they will die off. I don't care which one happens.

New case confirmed today near the South Sudan border. Victim is a forty year old female who'd been identified by health officials as exposed to ebola and advised not to travel. She had then traveled North over 500km from Beni to Ariwara near the South Sudan border. This is the second incident of long distance travel by ebola victims in a few weeks. Had this woman travelled 500km East or South instead of North she could have arrived in cities of over 1.5 million people. I have a horrible feeling this is being allowed to steadily and inexorably spread and spiral out of control and could fairly quickly overtake the West African outbreak in both number of victims and geographical extent.

There are now 35,000 of them headed to the US via our So border.

Males can transmit the Ebola virus in their semen for 2.5 years!!

Assuming the count is right, they do seem to be making progress in preventing the geometric growth rate from happening.
