According to North Kordofan Ministry of Health, there are 558 suspected cases, 5 deaths and 6 cases still under quarantine in isolation centers all caused by dengue fever outbreak in the state. A week ago, the North kordufan state government announced a 14 day stay at home advisory to help with combating the outbreak. Recent rains and floods have affected almost 350,000 people across Sudan this year, according to UN OCHA. Which may be a leading cause of the spike in dengue cases, as standing water left after floods and rains can lead to increased mosquito breeding. In response, SAPA had launched a campaign that targeted more than 30,000 homes in a neighbouring state and which lasted for 15 days in the form of spraying, in addition to awareness campaigns in schools, radio and television, and health messages through social media platforms.Donate Now
