Via L'Express de Madagascar: Antananarivo-Ville - A sick man in the street succumbs to the plague. The edited Google translation and then a comment:
The epidemic of plague is still being talked about in the city of Antananarivo. A man reportedly entered a large hospital in Antananarivo with the plague, according to the result of his removal from a rapid diagnostic test (RDT). It was the Municipal Health Bureau (BMH) of Antananarivo City Council that reported back late that evening. "Some people brought this man to our service this morning (note: yesterday). They found him in the street, sick. We did first aid; he was then taken to a big hospital for further treatment. He succumbed some time after," says our source.
Before this last case, the Minister of Public Health, Professor Mamy Lalatiana Andriamanarivo, welcomed the "Zero deaths for ten days in Toamasina and for five days in Antananarivo". In the last report of the general plague situation, sent by the National Office of Risk and Disaster Management (BNGRC), yesterday, there were no deaths reported, despite the rise in deaths from 131 to 132 between November 7th and 8th. The 132nd case on the balance sheet was not recent, according to a source at the ministry.
Counting this man who died yesterday, the number of plague deaths increases to 133. This man was allegedly buried by BMH agents in the Anjanahary mass grave yesterday.
This is a November 9 report. WHO AFRO's most recent update states that as of November 3, 143 plague deaths had been reported. I have yet to see even a mention, let alone an explanation, of this discrepancy.
