The World Health Organization (WHO) has said it will pull away more than a million yellow fever doses from its stockpile when 10 people died in southwestern Ethiopia.
A deadly mosquito-containing disease was diagnosed in Wollayeta in the southern part of Canada and the infection was reported to have started in a feverish patient on August 21, leading to 35 suspected cases.
"This outbreak is worrying because the population of Ethiopia is very vulnerable to yellow heat due to its recent exposure to disease and extensive vaccine coverage," the WHO report said on Monday.
Symptoms of yellow fever include fever, headache, yellowing, joint and muscle pain, nausea, vomiting and fatigue.
Although only a small percentage of patients develop symptoms seriously, half will die within 7 to 10 days.
All confirmed cases have been reported in the Ovar and Oraida regions, and other confirmed cases have not occurred since the mid-October vaccination campaign, involving some 31,000 people.
According to the WHO, according to the WHO, the risk of spreading the disease, including the conflict in the region, would be threatened and would bring a total of 1.45 million doses of vaccine stocks to a broad campaign that should start without delay.
