WHO reports new Ebola incident in Uganda

GENEVA, July 17 (Reuters) - A fishmonger vomited at Mpondwe market in Uganda on July 11 before dying of Ebola in Democratic Republic of Congo, an incident that could spread the disease in Uganda, the World Health Organization reported on Wednesday.

WHO said in a report that about 590 fishmongers at the market could be targeted for vaccination, and it had yet to establish the woman’s movements or who had transported her or her goods. (Reporting by Tom Miles; editing by Jason Neely)
