According to a press release, the patient died on the September 19 at Tchomia General Hospital which is quite close to Uganda. “She was a contact of two previously confirmed cases (her mother and sister), thus a high risk contact. We are informed that she got lost to follow up when she moved to Kasenyi. She later became sick, and was admitted in Tchomia General Hospital where she died.  Read More A sample was taken from her and results released on the September 21, confirmed that it was positive for Ebola,” reads the press release.
