Epidemic of Yellow Fever May Spread Around the World
International charitable foundation Save the Children has made an alarming statement. According to its staff, outbreak of yellow fever in central Africa, which killed several hundred of people, could spill over to other regions.
Presumably the fever came from Angola. There, starting in December, the disease has killed at least 360 people. This is a large-scale outbreak of the disease in the country over the past few decades. In Congo, the government is trying to combat the epidemic through vaccination (it is planned to inoculate more than 10 million people). Ideally, they should begin vaccination campaign before. But there were no vaccines and syringes.
Also during this week a large-scale vaccination campaign against yellow fever in Angola begins. What is important, there are no drugs against yellow fever and the virus can spread around the world, said the head of division in Save the Children in Congo Heather Kerr. Nowadays the emergency supply of vaccine is currently 7 million doses. Doctors have recommended in case of a possible shortage, using one-fifth of the standard dose. This is enough to protect the patient from infection only for a while.
