Epidemiologist from the Kasai-Oriental Provincial Health Division, Dr. Jean-Pierre Nsumba Katende said Wednesday that more than 10,000 cases of malaria have been identified in this province in the space of only one week.
“ We know what brings us parasites, it’s mosquitoes. As soon as we eliminate these insects, we will know how to avoid this disease (…) Around our houses we must avoid grass (…) So as soon as we know how to maintain the sanitation of the environment we are spared this disease [Malaria, editor’s note] which currently makes more than 10,000 cases per week and that with a very high death rate, ”he declared.
In 2020, Kasai-Oriental recorded 1,015,367 cases of malaria.
