Kabompo District Medical Officer, Stephen Shajanika has expressed happiness in the manner people in Kabompo and Manyinga districts have embraced the yellow fever risk assessment exercise being conducted by the Ministry of Health in North-Western province.

Dr Shajanika told ZANIS that he is happy with the good response from the members of the public in the four selected areas where the yellow fever risk assessment is being conducted to determine the risk of yellow fever in humans.

He identified the selected areas as Maveve and Kabompo central in Kabompo district and Kaula and Lunsongwa in Manyinga district.

Dr Shajanika said people are responding well to data collectors who are collecting blood samples and mosquito species as well as asking questions to gather information on yellow fever illnesses in those
areas.

      Look at that map ? There’s yellow fever in some countries that are neighbouring Zambia. Have the Zambian immigration officials ever demanded Yellow fever certificates from nationals from these countries when they are entering Zambia? The answer is NO! This is the problem. You’ve made yourselves a high risk country indirectly by neglecting to protect your own public. It is the same with food and plants. Zambia doesn’t have controls to stop foreign microbes from entering the country by way of food and plants.

      THAT’S WHY WHEN U THINK OF SOUTH AFRICANS’ BEHAVIOUR SOMETIMES, IT’S EASY FOR ONE TO ALIGN ONESELF TO THE VEEP GS’ VIEW OF THESE GUYS.

    In zambia,we have YF in some parts of the country,the problem is that we have doll clinicians they are not going deep to do diagnoses hence missing the disease
    Equally typhoid is all over our country,in some places like Nakonde its an endemic
    THE FACT is that there are no laws in zambia politicians,doctors and Layers has destroyed our contry.
    we have seen pipo building cancer hospital for what?we have to know the source first bane

    Botswana shares borders with Angola(yellow fever zone) and Namibia and NO Motswana is asked to produce a yellow fever card when entering SA.Something wrong with SA.We have allowe it.We must guard our border on the northern part and stop blaming anyone who says something personal about SA.all those Spars Pick and Pay shops you see are from SA-if we are at risk why are they coming to Zed daily to do business in the malls and mines?
