    Central African Republic: An unknown disease kills donkeys in Mboki in the east of the country

    2018-10-15 Central African Republic, HEALTH

    Bangui, Central African Republic (ADV) - A still-unknown disease is killing donkeys in the eastern city of Mboki on the border with the Democratic Republic of Congo, the local Red Cross learned today.

    "In two weeks, we recorded 26 cases of donkey deaths. And we found the blood flow on the corpses at the level of their genitals and nostrils, "said ADV Mboki's President Michel Bih, attached to the phone.

    The mass death of donkeys in Mboki comes a few months after the mission carried out in this city by the Minister of Health Pierre Somsť and the partners of the WHO following an alert of suspicion of cases of Ebola virus disease.

    For the president of the local Red Cross, nothing says yet that it is an epidemic. "For lack of equipment to determine the causes of this disease, we can not say the Ebola virus or any epidemic. But the signs have symptoms similar to those of the Ebola virus, "he said.

    As a precaution, the local Red Cross cremated the bodies of these donkeys a few kilometers from the city and increased awareness of the population to avoid manipulating the bodies of these animals.

    The city of Mboki is today one of the cities where the mechanisms of the Ebola Virus Disease Surveillance Mechanism were created by the Ministry of Health with the support of WHO. A source from the Ministry of Public Health, particularly in the Epidemiological Service, speaks of a very imminent mission to ascertain these cases.
