L?epidemie de cholera franchit le cap de 8 000 cas dans les provinces en epidemie le long du fleuve Congo

? L?epidemie de cholera, qui sevit dans quatre provinces situes le long du fleuve Congo depuis l?annee derniere, demeure une preoccupation sanitaire majeure pour les autorites congolaises et les partenaires humanitaires. Au 8 janvier 2012, 8 092 cas dont 436 deces ont ete enregistres au Bandundu, Equateur, Province Orientale et la Ville Province de Kinshasa. Ces dernieres semaines, d?inquietantes flambees ont ete notees a Bunia, Geti, Lita et Tchomia, situes dans le district de l?Ituri de la Province Orientale, ou 519 cas dont 22 deces ont ete enregistres du 5 decembre 2011 au 15 janvier 2012. A Kinshasa, 32 cas ont ete enregistres la premiere semaine de l?annee ; la ville avait enregistre pres de 351 cas en decembre. A Bunia, L?ONG Medecins Sans Frontieres (MSF) a installe un centre de traitement de cholera pres de l?Hopital general de reference de Bunia tandis qu?une ONG nationale a mis a disposition des kits cholera et du personnel. Les organisations Solidarites International et Oxfam GB vont s?occuper des activites d?eau, hygiene et assainissement.

? Parmi les provinces endemiques du Katanga, Maniema, Nord-Kivu et Sud-Kivu, le Sud-Kivu est inquietant car 16 zones de sante sur les 34 que compte la province continuent de notifier des cas. Dans la capitale provinciale Bukavu ou plus de 150 cas ont ete enregistres depuis le debut de l?annee, les zones de sante de Bagira Kasha, Ibanda et Kadutu figurent parmi les plus affectes. Face a cette poussee, une poignee de zones - Minova, Kabare et Miti Murhesa- donne des signes positifs de regression de la maladie. Au 8 janvier 2012, 13 612 cas dont 148 deces avaient ete enregistres dans les provinces endemiques.

? Le nombre total de cas de cholera sur l?ensemble du pays est de 21 704 cas dont 584 deces, selon les derniere statistiques de l?Organisation mondiale de la sante (OMS).

? L?OMS et le Fonds des Nations Unies pour l?enfance ont recemment soumis une requete de financement au Fonds central d?intervention d?urgence pour poursuivre la lutte contre l?epidemie. En 2011, ces deux agences avaient recu 4 millions de dollars US.
