ANGOLA: Record rabies outbreak kills 93 children

JOHANNESBURG, 11 March 2009 (IRIN) - One of the most severe rabies epidemics to hit Angola has claimed the lives of at least 93 children within three months in the capital, Luanda.

"The 93 children were brought to our hospital and are the only ones we know of, so the number could be higher," said Luis Bernardino, head of the Hospital Pediátrico David Bernardino in Luanda, the country's biggest referral hospital. "The number of cases has, however, started declining now."

He said the hospital was unable to save any of the children, as it had run out of doses of rabies vaccine; in some instances the children were brought in too late. "It is a sad moment for us," said Bernardino.

Francois Meslin, the rabies expert at the World Health Organisation (WHO) headquarters in Geneva, said in the last severe rabies outbreak, from 1998 to 2003 in Indonesia's Flores Island, 100 people had died within a year. "The high number of deaths in Luanda within the short period of time is a cause for serious concern and calls for a thorough investigation."

I'm so glad you take all your advice from such well informed people. I shall herewith only stay in cold wet air (Britain, basically) to avoid encountering a raby.


This??? LMAO. I thought you were just talking weird. :lol:

Which was exactly the same joke I made, but mine was subtler. :P


I got it, but I read your post after I thought of making a joke and still wanted to make one.

So you at least have a good dentist, then. Although getting a crown by mail... wash your hands before fitting it, Rabies are notorious for liking warm papery environments to breed and plot, as any spelunker will tell you.

I think even rabies would avoid the Mail on Sunday though - so maybe the mail on Monday will be safe.

No no, I don't have a dentist here, yet. My crown is all diamonds and platinum. :P

The article I have mentioned that involved me was under a headline that read "Left On A Trolley To Die".

Fortunately something was documented that proved otherwise. Maybe if that had not have been written, I would have been stacking shelves as Tesco.

Here is another Daily Mail headline.

Dying cancer patient left to wait on trolley

If this happened in the hospital I work at heads would roll.

Totally unacceptable.

I promised I'd post whenever there's news:

http://www.thisislocallondon.co.uk/news ... _hospital/

Still no real developments, but it sounds like he had the hypernatraemia the day before he dies, and that the nurse responsible for passing the message on went off duty. May or may not be true, but the story is getting slightly clearer.
