Rapid risk assessment: Outbreak of Ebola haemorrhagic fever in Uganda

risk assessment

In the light of an outbreak of Ebola haemorrhagic fever in Uganda, ECDC has considered the risk to public health in the EU.The risk of becoming infected is considered to be low unless a person is in direct contact with bodily fluids of dead or living infected persons or animals. It is therefore unlikely that EU citizens in Uganda will become infected. In the unlikely event that a traveller infected in Uganda arrives in the EU while incubating the disease and develops symptoms, they should seek medical attention and be isolated, which will prevent further transmission.
