Child undergoes medical examination in Darfur. Region of Sudan accounts for at least 84 suspected cases of yellow fever and 32 deaths from the disease.

An outbreak of yellow fever broke out in seven locations in Central and South Darfur, Sudan, has made 32 dead since the first week of October. The World Health Organization (WHO) warned this week that were reported at least 84 suspected cases in the Darfur region.

The agency indicates the immediate priority of the disease vector control, the strengthening of the surveillance system and increased public awareness on the prevention and control of infection.

According to the agency, the preparations for a mass vaccination campaign are underway.

Yellow fever is transmitted by mosquitoes and has no specific treatment beyond supportive care to treat dehydration, fever and blood transfusion when the measure appears necessary.

It is possible to prevent the disease and the symptoms vary from case to case with protective measures, such as using mosquito nets, repellents and long clothes.
