According to the local New Vision newspaper, it is suspected that a second person, a little child, died of Ebola in a hospital in the country’s capital.
Testing is being done to determine the cause of death.
According to health officials, the dead was one of 14 patients with Ebola-like symptoms who were admitted to a hospital.
Six individuals who passed away earlier this month from what the locals have termed as an odd sickness are also undergoing tests.
The World Health Organization announced on Tuesday that Uganda had had its first Ebola outbreak in more than ten years.
