  • Abstract The third known outbreak of Marburg-virus disease occurred in Kenya in 1980. The index patient acquired infection in western Kenya, and a doctor in close contact with the patient terminally during a massive haematemesis developed infection in Nairobi. There was no further evidence of nosocomial transmission. Surveillance in western Kenya provided no evidence of Marburg-virus disease but suggested the presence of Ebola haemorrhagic fever.
