NBC News — An outbreak of the Ebola virus in Uganda has claimed at least three lives. Uganda's health minister said two of the dead were from a family living about 50 miles north of the capital.
An Ebola outbreak took place this summer in the western part of Uganda near the border with the Democratic Republic of Congo, but Uganda had since declared itself Ebola-free. Health officials in Uganda say five more suspected cases of Ebola are being monitored including two at a isolation facility at a hospital in Kampala.
