Unknown Hemorrhagic Disease Outbreak Affecting Northern South Sudan

NPR: Mysterious Hemorrhagic Fever Outbreak Stumps Disease Detectives
“…The situation in South Sudan today is a far cry from that in West Africa a few years ago. But it’s still concerning, the World Health Organization said. So far, there have been 51 cases — including 10 deaths — from an unknown disease in the northern part of South Sudan. The main symptoms of the disease are similar to those seen with Ebola: unexplained bleeding, fever, fatigue, headache and vomiting. But the culprit definitely isn’t Ebola…” (Doucleff, 5/31).
