Mystery Disease Found
So sadly my hopes and dreams were not realized when the mystery disease spreading through northern Uganda was found. Now I'm not saying I wanted a disease here in the first place, but to be here when possibly new bacteria (as they were thinking) was being discovered would have been amazing. That being said, they figured out what the sickness in the north was - yellow fever. Now they know the treatment course and people should be staying healthy. I'm vaccinated so for those of you who were worried at home everything here is dandy! Just one more reason to really use my mosquito net and avoid trashy horror movies like Skeeter.
