A second patient who had tested positive for the deadly Ebola virus in Uganda has died, according to a health ministry official on Thursday. This is the second fatality since the virus spread from neighbouring Democratic Republic of Congo.
The victim, a 50-year-old woman, was described as the grandmother of the five-year-old boy who died on Tuesday.
They had travelled to DRC with their family for the burial of the boy's grandfather, who was believed to have been infected by the virus.

Health workers are treating other members of the family, some of whom also tested positive for the virus, in an attempt to stop the spread of the virus.
These are the first confirmed Ebola cases outside the DRC since an outbreak began there a year ago.
