Yellow fever outbreak in Darfur kills 67

November 10, 2012SUDAN - A yellow fever outbreak in the Darfur region of Sudan has infected 194 people and killed 67 with the number of cases more than doubling since the start of the epidemic in October. The World Health Organization reported that the outbreak is taking place in 17 localities in the north, west, south and central parts of Darfur. The number of cases has risen dramatically from the 84 initial cases reported when the outbreak began. As of November 5, surveillance in the region shows that 83.3 percent of the cases are from central Darfur, 7.2 percent are from south Darfur, 7.2 percent are from west Darfur and 2.3 percent are from the northern part of the region. The WHO is monitoring the outbreak throughout the region, training more than 225 health workers in the region on case management, infection prevention, control and disease surveillance, and working with the Sudanese Ministry of Health to send technical teams to stop the outbreak. The organization recommends that disease surveillance be strengthened in eastern Darfur, a continuation of the laboratory testing of patients from newly affected locations, and finalizing a vaccination plan with available resources and partners to implement it. In February, the U.N. backed a mass vaccination plan in northern Cameroon in an effort to vaccinate more than 1.2 million people and a campaign in Ghana to vaccinate more than 235,000 people. Yellow fever infects an estimated 200,000 people annually. The disease is caused by a mosquito-borne virus and it kills as many as 30,000 people each year. There is no specific treatment for yellow fever and vaccination is the most important preventive measure. –Vaccine

    Personally I would take my chances with the mosquitos. Vaccines contain a toxic mix of mercury MSG and who knows what else. Considering that the WHO is part of the illuminati controlled UN, New World Order clowns. The so called 1%, that believe the world is overpopulated by 95%. It wouldn’t surprise me if the so called cure was more deadly than the diease. Eugenicist make people sick. SQ said” a shot in the arm, or a shot in the head. EITHER WAY YOU’RE DEAD. Oh the vaccination is manditory? You go first then, bet the Dr.s don’t shoot their familys with this stuff.

      The world IS over-populated and will continue to get worse. I do not agree with some of the covert methods that we believe are being employed, but something will have to be done to at least slow the growth. Humans have become like a virus and we are literally killing our planet.

    Key facts

    Yellow fever is an acute viral haemorrhagic disease transmitted by infected mosquitoes. The “yellow” in the name refers to the jaundice that affects some patients.
    Up to 50% of severely affected persons without treatment will die from yellow fever.
    There are an estimated 200 000 cases of yellow fever, causing 30 000 deaths, worldwide each year.
    The virus is endemic in tropical areas of Africa and Latin America, with a combined population of over 900 million people.
    The number of yellow fever cases has increased over the past two decades due to declining population immunity to infection, deforestation, urbanization, population movements and climate change.
    There is no cure for yellow fever. Treatment is symptomatic, aimed at reducing the symptoms for the comfort of the patient.
    Vaccination is the most important preventive measure against yellow fever. The vaccine is safe, affordable and highly effective, and appears to provide protection for 30–35 years or more. The vaccine provides effective immunity within one week for 95% of persons vaccinated.

    Yellow fever is difficult to diagnose, especially during the early stages. It can be confused with severe malaria, dengue hemorrhagic fever, leptospirosis, viral hepatitis (especially the fulminating forms of hepatitis B and D), other hemorrhagic fevers
