Via La Gazette de la Grande Ile: Editorial: Plague! Excerpt from a Google translation from French:
The city was buried under tons of household waste. And with the eternal water drainage in the slums of Antananarivo parliamentary candidates have explored problems lately, rats emerge from their dens to spread bubonic plague.
According to sources from the Ministry of Health has already recorded a hundred cases of bubonic plague in Madagascar while half of which would be fatal.
Foreign media have not missed the opportunity to put Madagascar once again in front of the international scene. As if nothing good ever happened to us. Actually, it is not very far from the truth.
Faced with this situation, the municipality will finally react, after the European Union decided to come to the aid of a capital plunged into anarchy and incredibly unhealthy.
Thus, remediation of emergency actions for low areas of the city of Antananarivo will soon be conducted. The presentation of the project will be held today in the apartment room beautiful City Hall Analakely where different makers will be explained, starting with those of SAMVA and APIPA. Signing the grant contract will close the ceremony.
Indeed worth remembering that if Antananarivo floundering in this situation, it is always a question of money. It's always been like that for years.
