Rwanda earlier this year announced it would give front-line health workers an experimental but effective Ebola vaccine as concerns rose about cross-border spread of the highly contagious virus.

This comes after one case of the Ebola virus was, Tuesday, confirmed in Uganda's western district of Kasese by the World Health Organisation.

In addition, two additional confirmed EVD cases are reported in Kasese District-the 50 year-old grandmother and three year old brother of the initial case.

A statement from the Health Ministry said an alert had been issued to all health workers across the country.

The death is the first in Uganda, amid a deadly outbreak in the neighboring Democratic Republic of Congo. A World Health Organization statement said he entered on Sunday with his family through the Bwera border post.

The viral disease spreads through contact with bodily fluids, causing haemorrhagic fever with severe vomiting, diarrhoea and bleeding.

World Health Organization Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus will reconvene an emergency committee on Friday to decide whether the outbreak is an worldwide public health emergency and how to manage it, a WHO statement said. "Now this means containing this outbreak and making sure it doesn't become an epidemic", Hoskins said. At its last meeting on April 12, the group said lack of worldwide spread was one of the reasons it held off on recommending a PHEIC declaration.

In addition, a team comprising of medical specialists especially laboratory scientists will work hand in hand with local Ebola experts to carry out tests on suspected cases. The director-general of the World Health Organisation reports that nearly 4,700 health workers have been vaccinated in roughly 165 health facilities around the country. While Uganda is well-prepared with established surveillance, "we can expect and should plan for more cases in [Congo] and neighbouring countries".
