Via Midi Madagasikara, an editorial: Fever then! The Google translation:
Madagascar ranks second after the Democratic Republic of Congo and Zambia before. It is not the FIFA rankings, but this rather gloomy established by an American researcher on the most affected countries by the resurgence of the plague.
WHO regards it as a re-emerging disease in the world. Even in the Big Island where his resurgence in the Moramanga region feeds back the collective imagination which assimilates to a plague, even though the disease - still as dangerous and contagious - not decimating populations as it was if in medieval times. She was also described as a "disease of the Middle Ages" and above all touched (the world) the beggars and the needy.
Today, it is and remains "the disease of the poor". It decimates them without reducing poverty. With its share of unhealthy and unhygienic, a breeding ground for the bacteria of the plague spread by rats - and their chips - invading slums and garbage mountains. Promiscuity also promotes disease that is spread by close contact with a person or an infected animal.
This raises the question of sanitary surveillance of relatives of victims of the plague in Moramanga where self-medication in high doses of Cotrim, somehow the antibiotic of the poor, has not visibly decreased the fatality rate since the number rose again from the dead. Which may wake up to rightly or wrongly, in the company's self-preservation or almost natural reflex is to put in quarantine, relatives of patients and / or victims which would then avoid like ... plague.
A disease that reappears every year in the territory, although it is early this time because usually, the re-emergence occurs during the rainy season. Anyway, even in advanced countries like the United States have not been able to completely eradicate the plague.
