Raw is risky: Two more deaths from brucellosis in Africa

The current human brucellosis epidemic in Ath Mansour has again
claimed new victims. These are 2 citizens of Ath Vouali, hospitalized
Wednesday [28 Aug 2019] at the EPH Kaci Yahia M’Chedallah. The
affected subjects are a 40-year-old father and his 15-month-old son.
Met in the halls of the hospital, the father indicated that he and his
family have consumed raw milk from the farmer whose goats were
infected almost 2 months ago.

After these 2 new victims, 6 cases of human brucellosis have been
detected since last week [18-24 Aug 2019] in this commune and
hospitalized at M’Chedallah hospital. In this context, we learned that
a Daira commission, composed of a member of the APC executive of Ath
Mansour, the subdivisionary of agriculture of Ahnif, a member of the
prevention of the Ahnif EPSP and the M’Chedallah Civil Protection
Unit, was set up on the instructions of the Daira Chief.’
