A total of 724 people have already received treatment in the Kavango East Region for anthrax after the outbreak of highly contagious disease in the Bwabwata National Park.

The spokesman for the Ministry of Environment and Tourism, Mr. Romeo Muyunda, confirmed that no cases of anthrax have been found among humans and livestock so far.

"The Ministry of Health and Social Services is engaged in an awareness campaign in the community and residents of the Mukwe constituency receive preventative treatment against anthrax," Muyunda said this morning.

He confirmed that a total of 117 hippo and seven buffalo carcasses have already been destroyed.

"The vaccination process of livestock by the Ministry of Agriculture, Water and Forestry continues in affected areas this week," Muyunda said.

Miltsiekte: 724 mense kry voorkomende behandeling

Altesaam 724 mense het reeds voorkomende behandeling in die Kavango-Oosstreek teen miltsiekte ontvang ná die uitbreking van die hoogs aansteeklike siekte in die Bwabwata Nasionale Park.

Die woordvoerder van die ministerie van die omgewing en toerisme, mnr. Romeo Muyunda, het bevestig dat geen gevalle van miltsiekte onder mense en vee dusver gekry is nie.

“Die ministerie van gesondheid en maatskaplike dienste is besig met ‘n bewusmakingsveldtog in die gemeenskap en die inwoners van die Mukwe-kiesafdeling kry voorkomende behandeling teen miltsiekte,” het Muyunda vanoggend gesê.

Hy het bevestig dat altesaam 117 seekoei- en sewe buffelkarkasse reeds vernietig is.

Hope they started the vaccine program as soon as the outbreak was apparent.

Have to have a chat with the travel doc before that Elephant in Bwabwata.

Part of Bwabwata National Park where confirmed anthrax cases have killed nearly 110 hippo and 20 buffalo since the start of October, has been closed to tourists.


My favourite part about the media.

Health scare as anthrax may spread across the region

Gaborone – The Southern African region has been warned to brace itself for the spread of anthrax which has killed more than 100 hippos in Namibia.

The disease has already spread to Botswana through the Okavango River and has already claimed the lives of three hippos.

The Director of Department of Veterinary Service Dr Letshwenyo Modisa said his department and other stakeholders were monitoring the situation.

Speaking during a live broadcast on Botswana Television, Modisa said they had removed more than eight dead carcases of hippos from the Okavango River. He said the carcasses of dead hippos killed by anthrax were spilling into the country from Namibia through the Okavango River.

Karl just had a great offer in the area. Thinking more of the fellow hunter that is likely on the way.

Kevin,
Played rookie league for the Yankees in Paintsville after winning the College World Series at Fullerton State, in1979. All I could think about was the movie “Deliverance”- lived up in a hollow with some other players. Refused to go on a moonshine run because it was a dry county-no way. Met some of the nicest people on the planet there! Van Lear the home of Loretta Lynn was highlight of summer LOL.

Mule deer and Colorado elk seasons almost done! Hunters driving farm roads, looking for racks, their PH driving them along, I ask that you not pull into my drive. The buck behind me, on the boundary line of the GMU somehow knows. The hunter laughs, I would invite you in to see my Searcy rifles but social distancing prevails, darkness arrives and the buck slides away into secret tree grove...
