Cholera Outbreaks in Central and West Africa : 2017 Regional Update - Week 24

 

Faits saillants : D’observation générale, l’incidence est en large hausse par rapport aux années 2016 et 2015, dû à une incidence toujours très forte en République Démocratique du Congo (province du Nord Kivu avec des flambées bien marquées sur Goma, Kirotshe et Nyirango ; provinces de Kinshasa et Kongo Central) et l’apparition de foyers de transmission au Nigeria (état de Kwara et plus récemment Zamfara). A noter que la situation au Nigeria ne semble pas en sous contrôle et que le nombre de cas rapportés numériquement dans le bulletin est différent du nombre de la situation décrite dans la partie narrative. Ces deux situations seront plus amplement présentées dans le bulletin W26 (à sortir prochainement).

Highlights: The weekly incidences have continued rising and are well-above the ones of 2016 and 2015. This is due to a high transmission in DR Congo (province of North Kivu with impressive outbreaks in Goma, Kirotshe and Nyirango; provinces of Kinshasa and Kongo Central) and the resurgence of cholera outbreaks in Nigeria (Kwara state and more recently Zamfara). To be noted that the situation in Nigeria does not seem yet under control and that the number of cases reported is different from their narrative reports. These 2 countries epidemiological situations will be detailed in more depth in the bulletin W26 (to be released shortly).
