This is on top of the one case which was already confirmed by the health ministry earlier in January – and an unconfirmed death of a girl, 9.
Both hemorrhagic strains of the illnesses have patients struck by a high flu-like fever before suffering uncontrolled bleeding.
Blood can well-up from their noses, gums, anuses and eyes resulting in a horrific and painful death with fatality rates of up 40%.
Dr Aceng said the government has deployed “rapid intervention” teams to tackle both reports of CCHF and RVF.
The health minister added: “There have been sporadic cases of CCHF and RVF along the Cattle Corridor.
“The government would like to inform the general public that rapid interventions to manage and control the situations are underway."
Both infections can be spread by infected animal blood, and is passed to humans through ticks and mosquitos as well contact with animal meat.
World Health Organisation (WHO) officials label any outbreak of CCHF and RVF as a major threat to public health.
Dr Aceng said: “Spraying of ticks and insects is already ongoing in selected parts of the Nakaseke district and the cattle corridor.”
Uganda’s health minister had been at loggerheads with the Uganda Medical Association over reports of the fever, with the UMA branding the outbreak “epidemic”.
Dr Mukuzi Muhereza told Daily Star Online: "This has potential to spread further especially when the communities are not sensitised.
“There is need to know the signs – especially the danger ones – so that early management can be initiated.”
The health ministry initially slammed doctors’ reports as fear mongering and accused them of using the outbreak to beg for cash.
Pictures have emerged from Uganda of health workers in white masks and coveralls tending to patients in the reportedly infected areas.
Health officials have urged any workers and doctors to wear protective gear when handling patients.
