Ugandan medical authorities have issued a “high risk” alert spurred by the continuing outbreak of the Ebola haemorrhagic fever in the Democratic Republic of Congo.

Heath secretary Dr Diana Atwine issued to the warning on Twitter – including details of symptoms and fact sheets about treating ebola.

It comes as authorities in the Congo continue to detect new cases of the killer disease.

And health bosses are preparing to deploy an experimental treatment in a bid to curb the ebola outbreak.

Health workers are being vaccinated as they continue to fight the infection.

Dr Atwine urged people in Uganda to share the warning – revealing a phone line to report cases.

She said: “There is a confirmed Ebola outbreak in the [Congo] putting Uganda at high risk.

“Ebola is a serious disease that kills many with a very short period of time.

“The general public should remain clam and be on alert.

At least 38 people have been killed by the outbreak in the Congo.

The latest confirmed cases are near the town of Mangina and Beni.

And this is the second ebola outbreak in the Congo this year, with a previous ebola crisis in the west of the African nation ending in July
