Following the discovery of fourteen confirmed Ebola Cases in the greater Kampala region of the Ugandan capital on Monday, the country’s health minister has sought to assure anxious residents that the situation in the capital is under control.

According to the World Health Organisation figures issued last week, the death toll across the country from the Ebola epidemic declared in late September has climbed to 44.

Uganda’s health ministry meanwhile says there have been 90 confirmed cases overall and 28 deaths.

Health Minister Ruth Jane Aceng while speaking on the outbreak said there had been 14 confirmed cases in the Kampala area in the past 48 hours, including nine who were contacts of a fatality from Kassanda, one of two central districts at the heart of the outbreak.
