Don’t commit the crime, if you don’t want a painful deadly virus.

Medical and security officials in Uganda have reported that a man allegedly went into an isolation ward at a Uganda hospital and stole a cellular phone from an Ebola patient.  The unidentified, 40-year-old thief journeyed three kilometers to the hospital and stole a phone that was worth $20.  It has been reported that the suspect broke into the Ebola isolation ward unnoticed by hospital guards.  The patient that he stole the phone from has since surrendered to the deadly hemorrhagic fever known as Ebola, but reported the phone missing right before he died.

Detectives pursued the thief after he had made several phone calls to friends telling them that he was showing signs and symptoms of Ebola.  He then checked himself into the same hospital he stole the phone from and confessed his crime to the police.  Doctors are currently treating him for the Ebola virus.  According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention the Ebola virus which causes Ebola hemorrhagic fever is an infectious disease that consists of painful symptoms like: Rash, vomiting, diarrhea, and severe bleeding from every orifice of the human body.  It is safe to say that the crime was not worth the virus.
