While we argue about politics, a lethal virus is just a border away or it's possibly here now.....



On 17 October 2017, the Ugandan Ministry of Health notified WHO of a confirmed outbreak of Marburg virus disease in Kween District, Eastern Uganda. The Ministry for Health officially declared the outbreak on 19 October 2017.

As of 24 October, five cases have been reported – one confirmed case, one probable case with an epidemiological link to the confirmed case, and three suspected cases including two health workers.

On 20 September, he was admitted to a local health centre with high fever, vomiting and diarrhoea, and did not respond to antimalarial treatment. As his condition deteriorated, he was transferred to the referral hospital in the neighbouring district, where he died the same day. No samples were collected. He was given a traditional burial, which was attended by an estimated 200 people....

Wueh..chunga ile kasenge yako isikue imekojolewa na bats:D:D. By the way steam ya kasenge iko aje compared to goks local
Manze I travel to Uganda almost every week, I'm kind of worried with this outbreak, nisije nikapatwa na virus.... Goks haiwezi fikia kasenge kwa steam, goks ni kama sigara, kasenge ni kama cocaine.

thats good news, if it kills or affects a huge portion of the kenyan population (viruses dont discriminate) the focus will shift from uhuru na raila and unite the country and it will make some people very rich.. if i ran an evil organization such as this one that would be the thing to do

what the f**k are they doing over in madagascar???? some ritual called turning the dead is the one causing the Marburg virus.
A curious funerary ritual named “Famadihana” is practiced by the Malagasy people, an ethnic group that forms nearly the entire population of the giant African island of Madagascar. During the Famadihana, which roughly translates to “the turning of the bones”, the Malagasy people bring the bodies of their ancestors out of their crypts or dig them out of their graves and rewrap them in fresh cloth.

The current plague outbreak in Madagascar has killed more than 100 people, and officials say that a centuries-old tradition may increase the risk of further spread, according to news reports.
The plague is caused by the bacterium Yersinia pestis. The most common form of the disease is the bubonic plague; it occurs when Y. pestis gets into the body and travels to the lymph nodes. These lymph nodes become inflamed, and are referred to as "buboes," the World Health Organization says. If the bubonic plague goes untreated, the bacteria can spread to the lungs, causing pneumonic plague. This form of the disease can be spread through the air, the WHO says.
