Amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and Mpox outbreak, the Sudan
Ebolavirus (SUDV) had arisen as a new menace in Uganda. Multiple human
epidemics in Africa have been traced back to four genetically distinct
strains: Sudan ebolavirus, Zaire ebolavirus, Bundibugyo virus, and Taï
Forest virus. While African fruit bats are thought to be a reservoir
host for the ebola virus, scientists throughout the world are looking
for confirmatory evidences that bats play a significant role in the
spread of the disease.
