Security has rounded up 15 people in Kiruma Sub County in Mubende District and taken them to the Ebola isolation center for screening and testing.
The 15 are said to be members of the same family who had close contact with a deceased male family member but had resisted requests by the surveillance team to test.
Rosemary Byabashaija, the Mubende Resident District Commissioner, says that the 15 people were picked up by the Ebola Taskforce security committee on a tip-off.
She said that the security team found the affected to have been in contact with the deceased and took them into isolation at Madudu Health Center.
According to Byabashaija, the group belonged to the family, which has since lost 7 people to suspected Ebola but resisted going for testing.
She revealed that the deceased man from Kiruma traversed different areas like Luwero, Nateete in Kampala and died at Kirudu Hospital without providing a proper identity. Byabasaija on Ebola suspect..1
