- Cumulative cases: 122
- Cumulative deaths: 34 (same as yesterday, no new ones!)
- Admitted on isolation wards: Bundibugyo 4 . . . 0 admissions, 4 discharges, 0 deaths. Kikyo 8 . . . .2 admissions, 4 discharges, 0 deaths.
- Contacts: 423 identified, 327 being followed, 286 seen today (87%). 42 people moved off the list at the end of their 21 days.
- Surgeries Scott performed today: 3. He was called this morning by the police surgeon from Fort Portal who said he needed to go home for the weekend, so could Scott be on call. . And a few minutes later the first emergency C-section call came. So Scott and Scott spent the whole day at Bundibugyo hospital, once again the only people seeing non-Ebola patients. This pinch-hitting is very stretching for them, dealing with cases that come very late and very sick . . . Thankfully a healthy baby boy was delivered by C section, an 18 year old bleeding excessively from a miscarriage had a d and c, and another lady’s life was saved when she came with a retained placenta. Before and after all that Scott was dealing with airstrip maintenance. It’s a lot of work to be here these days.
