    Kasaï: eight suspected cases of yellow fever reported near Tshikapa (Kasaï)

    Friday, October 14, 2022 - 11:39

    Eight people with symptoms close to yellow fever have been identified in Kamako and Kandjaji, two localities located on the border with Angola and 150 kilometers south of Tshikapa, capital of Kasai.

    The head of the hygiene program at the border, who delivers the information, specifies that all these people come from Angola and that the samples were taken and sent to the INRB.

    “These people do not live in the DRC. They are Congolese who come from Angola. They have a very high fever. a yellow coloration. With the naked eye, we can speak of yellow fever but we are awaiting confirmation from the INRB", indicates the head of the border hygiene program, Christian Mabedi.

    The latter also regrets the delay taken by the INRB to follow up on the samples sent and fears that if these cases are proven, the time taken by the INRB exposes the population.

        Bukavu: launch of the yellow fever vaccination campaign

        Posted on Tue, 29/11/2022 - 12:21 | Modified on Tue, 29/11/2022 - 14:08

        The provincial Minister of Health of South Kivu launched, Monday, November 28, the preventive vaccination campaign against yellow fever in Bukavu (South Kivu).

        Three urban health zones of this agglomeration are initially concerned with the objective of vaccinating all people aged 9 months to 60 years in the 34 health zones of the province.

        Dr. Joseph Matundanya, provincial coordinating doctor of the Expanded Vaccination Program (EPI) in South Kivu, revealed that among the 26 provinces of the DRC, some have notified cases of yellow fever that have been laboratory confirmed.

        “There are even epidemics that have started in Kinshasa and in other provinces, which is why the government, through the Ministry of Health, organized this campaign for people from 9 months to 60 years old. Yellow fever is a disease that manifests as fevers accompanied by jaundice,” he said.

        The provincial coordinator of the EPI stressed that the vaccine remains the best way to fight against yellow fever:

        “The disease is transmitted by mosquitoes called Aedes. There is no proper treatment for yellow fever. This is why the World Health Organization (WHO) and the Ministry of Health have implemented the vaccine against this disease because when you are affected by yellow fever, the risk of mortality is high”.

        This yellow fever vaccination campaign in Bukavu was launched in the presence of government partners such as WHO and UNICEF.
