A suspected case of Ebola has been reported in Uganda.

Panicked health workers have stepped up screening efforts at the country’s border with the Democratic Republic of Congo.

Doctors say the patient exhibited symptoms similar to the deadly virus and are awaiting laboratory results to confirm his status.

The DRC is experiencing another deadly outbreak of the disease which has so far claimed at least 49 lives.

The World Health Organization says at least two-thousand people have been potentially exposed to the deadly virus in the DRC’s North Kivu region.
