Man dies of deadly Marburg virus in Uganda – 80 people placed in quarantine

October 2014 UGANDA, Africa A man has died in Uganda’s capital after an outbreak of Marburg, a highly infectious hemorrhagic fever similar to Ebola, authorities said on Sunday, adding that a total of 80 people who came into contact with him had been put under quarantine. Marburg starts with a severe headache followed by hemorrhaging and leads to death in 80% or more of cases in about nine days. It is from the same family of viruses as Ebola, which has killed thousands in West Africa in recent months. There is no vaccine or specific treatment for the Marburg virus, which is transmitted through bodily fluids such as saliva and blood or by handling infected wild animals such as monkeys. The health ministry said in a statement that the 30-year old radiographer died on 28 September while working at a hospital in Kampala. He had started feeling unwell about 10 days earlier and his condition kept deteriorating. He complained of headache, abdominal pain, vomiting blood and diarrhea.
Samples were taken and tested at the Uganda Virus Research Institute, and results confirmed the man had the Marburg virus. Doctors said his brother, one of the people he came into contact with, has developed similar symptoms and has been quarantined in a group of 80 others, 60 of whom are health workers. Those quarantined came into contact with the victim either in Kampala or his burial place in Kasese, a district in western Uganda bordering the Democratic Republic of Congo. Marburg has a shorter incubation period of 14 days, compared to Ebola’s 21. The current outbreak of Ebola, the deadliest on record so far, has killed more than 3 400 people in four West African countries. Uganda has been hit by several outbreaks of Marburg and Ebola in the past, but it has contained the outbreaks quickly, limiting fatalities. Its worst occurrence of hemorrhagic fever occurred in 2000, when 425 people contracted Ebola and more than half of them died. –News 24

    I’ve been wondering if this outbreak was indeed planned for the African population. Why are only the Americans surviving after evacuating back to the states? As I understand, the 1st Dr and nurse evacuated took turns for the worst before they left west Africa, how did they survive that far into progression of the infection? Is there really no vaccine or cure??? Makes one wonder!

      Man can take a virus and mutate it into the cocktail he wants.
      Remember the experiments conducted on Jews in German Concentration Camps.
      The two white people were volunteers from America and the part of the world they were working is predominately dark skin. Since being American citizens, they had the right to get the vaccine and we do not have proof that they are actually cured? But to say there isn’t any more right now, I find that a little far fetched. But they contracted the disease. So, saying it is a race based virus has not been proven………
      There are those and I am one that believes that this outbreak is part of a world wide de-popluation program and the place to start would be here when you look at the standard of living and access to medical facilities. Any virus would run wild.
