        Sudan: West Darfur Citizens Fear Yellow Fever Claimed Two More Lives
        24 JANUARY 2013

        Armenkol — Citizens of the Armenkol area in Sirba locality, West Darfur, fear that yellow fever may have claimed two more lives and are now "in a state of panic and fear" they told Radio Dabanga.

        Two people suffering severe bleeding and high fever died on Thursday leading locals to suspect the disease could be yellow fever, sources say.

        Armenkol residents confirmed to Radio Dabanga they have not been vaccinated against the disease because the ministry of health indicated yellow fever had not reached the area.

        Witnesses urged authorities to contain the situation before the disease spreads.
