A WORLD Health Organisation official says the Ebola outbreak in Uganda is under control.

Joaquim Saweka, the WHO representative in Uganda, told reporters on Friday that everyone known to have had contact with Ebola victims has been isolated—a total of 176 people.

Ebola was confirmed in Uganda on July 28, several days after the deadly disease had started killing villagers in a remote western corner of the nation.
