People walk in Mengo Hospital in Kampala
People walk in Mengo Hospital, where an employee died from the Ebola-like Marburg virus, in the Uganda capital Kampala October 6, 2014. The 30-year old radiographer died in Uganda's capital after an outbreak of Marburg, a highly infectious hemorrhagic fever similar to Ebola, authorities said on Sunday, adding that a total of 80 people who came into contact with him were quarantined. Marburg starts with a severe headache followed by haemorrhaging and leads to death in 80 percent or more of cases in about nine days. It is from the same family of viruses as Ebola, which has killed thousands in West Africa in recent months. The health ministry said in a statement that the man died on Sept. 28 while working at the hospital. REUTERS/James Akena (UGANDA - Tags: DISASTER HEALTH SOCIETY)
