Departement waarsku teen kinkhoes

2018-10-24 06:02

DIE Oos-Kaapse departement van gesondheid het inwoners van Nelson Mandelabaai gewaarsku oor die uitbreking van bordetella pertussis, ’n soort kinkhoes wat by babas jonger as drie maande voorkom.

Simptome is moeilike asemhaling en ’n hoes wat langer as twee weke duur.

Volgens die departement is 26 kinkhoesgevalle reeds die jaar in die metro aangemeld, teenoor die vyf gevalle oor dieselfde tydperk verlede jaar. Uit die 26 gevalle is 13 in die private gesondheidsektor en
13 by staatsgeriewe aangemeld.

Daar was net een sterfgeval. Ouers is gewaarsku om bedag te wees op die simptome en word versoek om hul kinders na hul naaste kliniek te bring indien hulle bekommerd is.

Die siekte word veroorsaak deur ’n bakterie en ’n entstof kan die siekte voorkom. – NETWERK24
