Uganda confirmed seven Ebola infections on Thursday as authorities try to track down 43 contacts of known Ebola patients two days after the authorities in the East African country announced an outbreak of the contagious disease.

A total of eight deaths, including one confirmed, are “attributable to the virus”, said Dr Henry Kyobe, a Ugandan military officer who is tracking Ebola cases. He spoke of a “rapidly evolving” situation where “we think cases may rise in a few days”.
