Epidemic in Gabon

English

Since April 2010, Gabon has been hit by the outbreak of the Chikungunya and Dengue epidemics. After laboratory analysis, 303 cases tested positive for the Chikungunya virus, 84 cases diagnosed with the Dengue virus, while 15 other cases of co-infections were discovered. No death has been reported yet.The Provinces affected by these epidemics are Lolo and Haut Ogooué, specifically the towns of Franceville, Lastourville and Koulamoutou. It is feared that Gabon could be affected by a general outbreak of the epidemics, especially as it is the peak of the farming season in that country.
