Via Jornal de Angola: Reforçada a campanha contra a febre-amarela.[Campaign against yellow fever is strengthened] Edited excerpt from the Google translation:
At the opening of the vaccination campaign, the deputy provincial governor of Malanje for the Technical Sector, Gabriel Pontes, has secured the provision of one hundred thousand doses of vaccine and has recruited 129 individuals between supervisors, vaccinators and mobilisers.
Gabriel Pontes said the campaign, in this location, is in response to the epidemiological situation of yellow fever affecting the country, particularly Malanje, and has asked the people of Cacuso to join the campaign to eradicate the disease, which has already caused three deaths in the province.
The provincial director of Health, Pedro José Antonio, recalled that the first cases of yellow fever began to appear in 2015, having affected several people at the country level and the disease is now the cause of many deaths.
Pedro José António said that the Provincial Government of Malanje, through the Provincial Health Directorate, embraced preventive measures to prevent any more deaths and people affected by yellow fever. To prevent the spread of the disease, he supported the idea of conducting training of health workers in provincial health units to facilitate diagnosis and detection of suspected cases.
