Karma Shocker: Thief Steals Phone From Ebola Patient and Becomes Infected

They say Karma is a cockeyed b*tch.  Never has that adage been more apt than the recent case in which a thief stole the cell phone of a patient quarantined in the Ebola isolation ward of a Ugandan hospital, only to later become infected with Ebola himself. The phone thief was tracked by police, and later admitted to the hospital with symptoms of Ebola. “The suspect is admitted at Kagadi Hospital with clinical signs of Ebola,” said Dr. Dan Kyamanywa, the Kibaale District Health Officer.

The Ebola virus spreads through contact with people who have the disease and causes hemorrhagic fever. It is incurable. No matter how you cut it, death is a heavy price to pay for stealing a phone.

According to The Daily Monitor:

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.
