An Ebola outbreak in Uganda spread to the capital, Kampala, and total reported cases jumped to 90 infections, the health ministry said on Twitter.

A family of seven in the capital were infected when they came into contact with a patient who had traveled to the city and later died in the nation’s main hospital, Health Minister Jane Ruth Aceng said earlier on Monday. The ministry reported cumulative infections at 75 people on Sunday.
