        A Tanzanian doctor working in Uganda who contracted Ebola has died, the first health worker killed by the disease in the latest outbreak in the country, Uganda's health minister said on Saturday.
        
        Health minister, Jane Ruth Aceng tweeted, "I regret to announce that we have lost our first doctor, Dr. Mohammed Ali, a Tanzanian national, 37-year-old Male."
        
        She said Ali had tested positive for Ebola on Sept. 26 and died while receiving treatment at a hospital in Fort Portal, a town about 300 kilometres west of the capital Kampala.
        
        Authorities in the east African nation announced the outbreak of the deadly hemorrhagic fever on Sept. 20 triggering fears of a major health crisis in the country of 45 million people.
        
        There is no vaccine for the Sudan strain of the disease behind the latest Uganda infections.
        
        The health ministry said on Friday, before Ali's death, that the disease had so far infected 35 people and killed seven.
