Namibia: Congo Fever Outbreak Declared


5 April 2018

By Sakeus Iikela

THE health ministry yesterday declared Congo fever an outbreak after the death of a Keetmanshoop man at the Windhoek Central Hospital on Tuesday, and the hospitalisation of two others.

Health minister Bernard Haufiku confirmed the death of 37-year-old Hendrik Hartebees yesterday.

He said the case registered on Tuesday could be regarded as an outbreak, "according to the World Health Organisation guidelines".

Windhoek central hospital superintendent Dr David Uirab also confirmed the hospitalisation of two other people from Keetmanshoop and Gobabis at the institution.
