    Kagadi - The International Rescue Committee (IRC) in collaboration with the Ministry of Health and Kagadi district is to establish Ebola screening points at points of entry into the country, on shores of Lake Albert.
    ...
    Dr Herbert Muhumuza, the Health Coordinator IRC, told New Vision that this is a high-risk area which has direct linkages with Ebola-stricken DRC because of the daily cross border movements on Lake Albert.

    Over 5-8 boats cross from both countries on a daily basis with an estimated 300 people.

    “These people have relatives on either side and even transact business together across the borders so it’s a high-risk area which must be handled with care to avoid the spilling over of Ebola into Uganda,” said Muhumuza.
