        *measles
        *Of the 644 cases , including three deaths from measles recorded in the province between 17 and 24 March , the District
        health Lubumbashi alone recorded 390 cases , including three deaths . Nearly 30 % of cases reported
        Lubumbashi from area health Kampemba . For health experts , two explanations justify
        this increase : this increase is a normal reaction after a vaccination campaign in
        context of epidemic where many children were in the incubation period of measles. So that the majority
        of these children developed the disease soon after vaccination. These experts believe that this trend
        upward Kampemba will certainly decline in almost two months. Hence , we must strengthen supervision and management of these children. This increase in cases is also explained by the fact that
        Kampemba or health zone most landlocked five health zones that make up the District of Lubumbashi.
        Health areas are distant from each other and also structures supported. The organization
        care services as unsatisfactory in the area of ​​health Kampemba . And since January 2014
        5,138 cases with 43 ​​deaths were recorded. This figure represents more than three times the number of cases registered at
        same period last year 1,370 cases).
        *As a reminder, more than 4.5 million children 6 months to 10 years were vaccinated against measles throughout
        the extent of the province from 18 to 22 March.
