Muchinga Anthrax outbreak contained

1

Government says the anthrax disease which broke out in Muchinga Province has been contained.

 
Muchinga Province Minister Malozo Sichone said out of the 40 people who were infected with Anthrax at the time the disease broke out, only 4 people are still under treatment.
 
He said the 40 victims got infected by consuming meat which was infected by the Anthrax virus.
 
Mr Sichone said this was because the people lacked information on the effects of such vices.
 
Speaking in an interview with ZANIS in Lusaka today Mr. Sichone explained that state agencies had embarked on sensitization campaigns to alert people on the dangers of consuming anthrax infested.
 
He said Anthrax disease is endemic in western and North -western Province of Zambia and occurs throughout the year.
 
The Provincial Minister said there is need for the country to develop a workable strategy on how to control outbreaks of disease as they impact negatively on the economy of the country by affecting the livestock industry and public health.
 
Mr. Sichone urged people in Muchinga province to desist from consuming infected meat as it poses high risks to their health.

  1. (HOW I GOT MY CURED FROM HIV POSITIVE)
    I want to testify to the world on how i got cured from HIV positive. For the past 3 years i have been affected with this deadly virus and i have spent a lot of money in getting healed and free from this virus, but all was in vain. So i keep on taking my anti-retrovirus drugs just to strengthen my immune system and keep me healthy, until one faithful day, I read an article on the internet about an Africa Herbalist doctor call Dr Greg Carlos, who uses herbs and roots to cure all kind of diseases. Though i never believed he can cure HIV, but i decided to give it a try. Then i contacted the herbalist doctor and told he about my HIV status. He prepared a herbal medicine and send it to me through courier company and i took it as instructed. 9 days after he told me to go for a checkup,, i went to the hospital to run another HIV test, the result came out and i was tested HIV negative. I’m using this medium to say THANK YOU Doctor and i will forever be grateful for what he has done for me.You can also reach him on email: [email protected] or whatsapp +2348146867873, Thanks so much.
