RIP: Quarantine Imposed in East African Country as Deadly Outbreak Kills One, Others Hospitalised

There has been an outbreak of diseases in the recent days and the World Health Organisation (WHO) have been asking individuals to take the necessary precautions. While the world is still battling the deadly coronavirus, other illnesses such as the monkey pox have become emerged. The world is currently facing major problems such as outbreak of diseases, wars, famine and hunger.

Uganda today reported an outbreak of a disease that has claimed one life. According to reports by the ministry of health, the illness that has already spread in four districts has had ten other infected people hospitalised as ten cows die.

The cows are said to have been infected by the Anthrax disease that was transmitted to humans. Anthrax is a rare but serious bacterial illness. It is caused by a spore-forming bacterium and mainly affects animals. Humans can become infected through contact with an infected animal or by inhaling spores. Members of the affected districts have therefore been warned against consuming dairy products as the outbreak is investigated.
