Outbreak Of Anthrax In Bongo District, Three People Reported Dead‎, Ghana

Three people have died following the outbreak of anthrax in the Balungu electoral area of the Bongo District in the Upper East region.

Several animals have also died from the disease which has been in the community for the last two weeks.

The Assemblyman for the area Edward Abesiwine who disclosed this to Radio Ghana said officials from the Ministry of Agriculture are in the community to vaccinate animals against the disease.

Mr Abesiwine appealed to government and philanthropists to go to the aid of the people since some cannot afford the fee being charged for vaccination. Source
