Four die from mystery disease in West Darfur
An unknown disease resulted in the death of four people on Monday, and infected three on Tuesday in the area of Foro Baranga, West Darfur.
“The symptoms are vomiting, fever, and bleeding from the mouth”, a listener told Radio Dabanga from Foro Baranga. “After the appearance of the symptoms, the patients die about three hours later.”
He said that four people died on Monday. “Three others were affected. They are now in a hospital in Foro Baranga in serious condition. The hospital, however, is short of medical staff, and medicines.”
In Central Darfur, 113 displaced died in Mukjar camp between 1 July and 27 August, owing to various “rainy season diseases such as fever and malaria”, the coordinator of the Central Darfur camps for the displaced reported to Radio Dabanga.
He appealed via Radio Dabanga to the UN, international organisations, and the Central Darfur State authorities, to provide vaccines and medical treatment.
