Following the death of a patient who had also worked as a Radiographer at Mengo Hospital for one month, on 28th September, 2014, over thirty five Mengo Hospital Health workers who treated the deceased, were quarantined to protect the rest of the staff and clients of Mengo Hospital in case they had been infested by the virus. The isolation would also allow the Ministry of Health carry out tests to find out whether they had contracted the deadly Marburg virus. One month down the road, the quarantined staffs have been declared free of the Marburg virus.
Dr. Rose Mutumba, the Mengo Hospital Medical Director, announced this while addressing Mengo Hospital staff;
“Our staffs are back; they are safe and healthy. We thank God for protecting them; we’ll hold a Thanks-giving Service shortly,” she said.
