Man steals phone from Ebola patient, gets infected
The Daily Monitor ^ | 26 August 2012 | Francis Mugerwa

Posted on 08/27/2012 9:33:06 PM PDT by verum ago

Security and medical officials in Kibaale District have registered a case in which a man allegedly went in an isolation ward at Kagadi Hospital and stole a cellular phone from one of the Ebola patients.

The 40-year-old resident of Kyakabugahya LCI in Kagadi Town Council travelled about three kilometers to the hospital to apparently obtain a phone estimated to be valued at Shs60,000 more than two weeks ago.

The suspect allegedly broke into the isolation ward on the night of Tuesday August 14, undetected by hospital guards. The patient, who has since succumbed to the deadly hemorrhagic fever, then reported the theft to the hospital security that then embarked on tracing the alleged thief.

Police detectives began tracking him after he apparently began communicating to his friends using the phone. But as police zeroed in on him, he developed symptoms similar to those of Ebola and sought medication at the hospital.

Oh, and for the curious:

Speaking of signatures, yours made me a giggle a little bit. Thought of a very juvenile pun (I’m guessing you weren’t “aiming” for that though, so I’ll spare you from it). Just in a weird mood tonight.

There's no telling what I'm "aiming for" at any given moment.

I may [or may not] be enjoying the ambiguity

:)

Thanks for the ping. Please pardon another redundant ping, if any.

That's what I was going to say, nearly anyway. I was going to say:

"Talk about bad karma".
