Tanzanian authorities have identified Leptospirosis as the cause of a mysterious outbreak that killed three people in the southern region of Lindi last week.
A team of health scientists launched an investigation.. The victims experienced fever, headaches, fatigue, and nosebleeds, among other symptoms.
Ummy Mwalimu, the country’s Minister of Health, announced on Monday that test results from patients in Ruangwa, one of Lindi’s districts, were positive for the disease, also known as “rat fever.”
Health Minister Ummy Mwalimu said: “The good thing is that this disease is preventable and can be cured,” the minister explained, calling on the population to remain calm. Most patients have recovered from the disease, whose symptoms include nosebleeds, fever, headaches and fatigue. Two remain in isolation, she said.
