According to the World Health Organization (WHO), 96 cases of Ebola were reported in Uganda. Two deaths were also recorded - a 5-year-old boy and his grandmother died on June 11 and 12, who became infected during a trip to the Congo.

As reported earlier, the outbreak of Ebola fever began in the Congo in August 2018: despite all the preventive measures, over 2,000 people were infected, of whom over 1,200 people died.
