Three case of Ebola has been reported in Uganda, the first cross-border case from the Democratic Republic of the Congo,according to an article on the ARS Technica website.

A 5-year-old Congolese boy and his 50-year-old grandmother who traveled across the border with family have died. The boy's 3-year-old brother has also tested positive

The remaining family will be sent back to the Congo. That includes the 3-year-old as well as the mother, father, a 6-month-old sibling, and their maid. Health officials noted that the latter four family members are all considered “suspected cases.”

There are also three people unrelated to the family who had contact with the deceased 5-year-old and are now considered suspected cases. They are being held in isolation at an Ebola Treatment Unit in the western Ugandan town of Bwera.
