The deadly Ebola hemorrhagic fever has broken out in the central Ugandan district of Luwero about one month after the World Health Organization (WHO) declared the East African country free of the disease.

Joaquim Saweka, the WHO country representative told Xinhua by telephone on Wednesday that the outbreak was confirmed on Tuesday following laboratory tests that turned out positive for the disease.

"Yes that is true, we have dispatched one team to make preliminary assessment and also set up an isolation unit," he said.

The epicenter of the outbreak is in Sombwe Parish, Nyimbwa Sub County, Luwero district which is located about 40km north of the capital Kampala.

Joseph Okware, the Luwero District Health Officer was quoted by Daily Monitor on Wednesday as saying that two people belonging to the same family had died of the disease over the weekend.

The outbreak comes at a time when the country is still experiencing the deadly Marburg fever in several parts of western Uganda.

In July this year the Ebola outbreak in the Midwestern Ugandan district of Kibaale left at least 20 people dead.

Ebola victims present with symptoms like fever, vomiting, diarrhea, abdominal pain, headache, measles-like rash, red eyes, and sometimes with bleeding from body openings. - PNA

what does an ebola patient go through?   

often quoted as descriptive of an ebola patient are excerpts from the book "the hot zone" by richard preston.  the following is the mildly paraphrased excerpt of the most important points:
 
     The headache begins, typically, on the seventh day after exposure in the form of a throbbing pain behind the eyes, the pain grows worse and the eyeballs hurt. Medication has no affect. The pain moves around between the eyes and the temples. Then a backache forms.

    On the third day after the headache starts the victim becomes nauseated and spikes a fever, and vomiting begins.

    When the vomiting becomes intense dry heaves, the victim becomes strangely passive, presumably from brain damage. The face loses all appearance of life and sets into an expressionless mask, with the eyelids droopy, as if the victim's eyes are falling out and half closed at the same time. The eyeballs are frozen in their sockets and turn a bright red. The skin on the face turns yellowish with star like red speckles. on the whole the victim will begin to look zombie-like.

    With this physical transformation, there is a considerable psychological change as well; becoming sullen, resentful, angry, and very amnesiac, the victim may seem like a zombie in behavior as well.
Republic Act 8485 (Animal Welfare Act of 1998, Philippines), as amended and strengthened by House  Bill 6893 of 2013--- violation means a maximum of P250,000 fine with a corresponding three-year jail term and a minimum of P30,000 fine and six months imprisonment

This will continue for a few days and then the victim will regurgitate the substance known as vomito negro or black vomit. This is a red liquid speckled with black, it is blood that has come into the stomach as the Ebola virus eats away at the stomach wall. The red dots on the victims face have become swollen, purple bruises, and the connective tissue on the face has corroded so that the entire face is black and blue, and literally hanging from the bone.

The victim holds himself/herself rigid as if any movement would rupture something inside of them. Blood has begun to clot all over the blood stream while the liver, the kidneys, the lungs, hands and feet are all being jammed with blood clots. In essence a full body stroke is occurring and the blood is slowing down enough to kill the internal organs. The intestines are dead or dying, and personality is being wiped away by brain damage, this is called depersonalization and it means that the brain has been liquefied by the virus to the point that only the basic instincts and functions are still working.

Soon after nose bleed begins, signaling the last stage of the attack. As the victim's flesh deteriorates, the body becomes a virus time bomb.

The last phase occurs only after the victim has vomited all stomach contents and much blood and has lost most human personality characteristics.  After all this, the victim "crashes and bleeds out", feeling dizzy and utterly weak, the spine goes limp and nerveless and all sense of balance is lost.  The room turns around and around. The victim is going into shock. Then, leaning over head on the knees, a huge amount of blood is expelled with a gasping groan. Consciousness is lost and the now limp body is pitched forward onto the floor. The only sound is a choking in the throat while the vomiting continues while the he/she is unconscious. Then the sound of a bed sheet being torn in half, which is the sound of the bowels opening and venting blood from the anus. The blood is mixed with intestinal lining. The gut has been sloughed. The linings of the intestines have come off and are being expelled with huge amounts of blood.
