Kenya on High Alert After Suspected Case of Marburg Virus

The Kenya Medical Research Institute says samples taken from a Ugandan who died while visiting a Kenyan herbalist have tested negative for both Ebola and Marburg viruses, but the herbalist and her family will stay under observation for 21 days "since the incubation period of Marburg virus is between two and three weeks."



Health experts bury a Marburg victim on October 26, 2017 in Kween District, Uganda.
