This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

Screening units are being set up in Angola to improve the early diagnosis of Marburg haemorrhagic fever and ensure the isolation of infected cases. An isolation ward in a 400-bed hospital, the largest in Uige province, which accounts for 90% of cases to date, has been specially equipped to handle Marburg. All patients admitted are being screened for the disease. The World Health Organization has also begun a programme of training in the use of equipment and supplies, with the aim of reducing the risk of transmission in the healthcare setting. The disease had claimed at least 215 lives among the 235 cases confirmed up to April 12, reports the WHO.
