The death of the first doctor
The Ugandan Minister of Health Today I announced the first death of a doctor from Ebola. Dr Jane Ruth Aceng Osero said in a tweet this morning:
I regret to announce that we lost our first doctor, Dr. Muhammad Ali, a 37-year-old Tanzanian national, today at 3:15 AM. He tested positive for Ebola on September 26, 2022 and died while receiving treatment at Fort Portal RRH, Isolation Facility (JMedic).
My condolences to his family, medical fraternity, KIU and the people of Tanzania. Dr. Ali is the first physician and second health worker to succumb to Ebola. The first was a midwife from the St. Florence Clinic, a possible case, because she died before the test.
