Ebola Free Uganda

The long-awaited ray of hope has finally come after WHO declared the Uganda Ebola-free. Any fears for tourists about this viral disease can now be kicked out the window as they can once again travel without worry.

114 days have passed since the beginning of the Ebola outbreak in Uganda, which was announced on the morning of September 20, 2022. The Minister of Health Ruth Aceng noted that since September of last year, 143 persons had contracted Ebola.

Despite the difficult time as the country tried to contain the disease, WHO praised Uganda for its strong and comprehensive response. According to the WHO’s standards, an outbreak of the disease ends when there are 42 straight days with no new cases, which is something that this beautiful East African country has ably achieved.

While most people believe that travelling is only about enjoyment and amusement, it is also mostly healing. This is why it is no shock that this East African paradise was named one of the top tourist destinations of 2023 on CNN Travel’s list. This amazing list of top 23 locations across the world mentions Uganda which is only one of four African countries that CNN Travel highly recommends as the best vacation spots in the world.
