Baru-baru ini, negara-negara tetangga Uganda seperti Kenya, Tanzania, dan Rwanda, secara bertahap tengah mengintensifkan pengawasan di sepanjang jalur perbatasan mereka dengan Uganda untuk mencegah penyebaran virus Ebola masuk ke negaranya.

Wabah ini adalah yang kelima bagi Uganda sejak tahun 2000 silam, ketika virus Ebola telah menewaskan sekitar 200 korban jiwa. Para ilmuwan berpendapat bahwa jenis virus Ebola Sudan yang kini mewabah di Uganda, penyebarannya relatif lambat.

Namun, penilaian WHO menunjukkan adanya risiko tinggi penyebaran virus Ebola di luar Uganda, karena masih adanya pergerakan lalu lintas di perbatasan yang cukup teratur.
