We made the list of all the contacts; fortunately for us, no contact developed the signs So far we have only had this one case, which died on the night of July 18,” François Mwakisenda told ACTUALITE.CD.

    This patient had confirmed, before his death, that he had eaten the meat of the game he had captured while working in the fields, and which showed skin rashes.

    In addition to the province of Kwango, Monkeypox is also notified in the provinces of Maniema, Kwilu, Sankuru, Mai-Ndombe, Mongala, Tshuapa, Bas-Uélé and Equateur.

                Sud-Ubangi: Monkeypox disease "already under control" in the Bulu health zone (Provincial Minister of Health)

                The Monkeypox disease or even monkey pox declared in the Bulu health zone, precisely in the Mbako health area in the province of Sud-Ubangi "is already under control".

                It was Malachie Adugbia Likundu, provincial minister of health in this part of the Democratic Republic of Congo who made this known in an interview with 7SUR7.CD this Thursday, September 22, 2022.

                He specifies that it has been more than 3 weeks since any new case of Monkeypox has been recorded in the health area of ​​Mbako where the disease was declared.

                Provisions have been made to prevent the spread of this disease, says the aforementioned ministerial authority, which refers in particular to raising public awareness of strict compliance with "hygiene measures" and the exhortation not to consume "animals found dead in the forest” often thought to carry the virus and transmit it to humans.

                It appears from a dispatch from the Bulu health zone consulted by 7SUR7.CD this same Thursday that there were a total of 7 notified cases including one death linked to this disease in the region.

                “There have been a total of 7 notified cases including one death. The investigation is done, the sample already taken and sent to the INRB through the PEV antenna. Contingency measures are taken. And at this stage the situation seems to be under control because there are no more cases [Editor's note: for] 3 consecutive weeks , ”reads this dispatch from the Bulu health zone.

                The Bulu health zone, where Monkeypox or Monkeypox is rife, is located in the Mongala-Kuma sector in Budjala territory in the province of Sud-Ubangi in the northwest of the Democratic Republic of Congo.
