Somalia is under epidemic outbreak of infectious diseases at present

The Somali Media for Environment, Science, Health and Agriculture (SOMESHA) needs to point the finger at the renewed epidemic diseases in across Somalia particularly south and central regions of Somalia in which is a widespread long-lasting outbreak of an infectious diseases, to the extent that the disease spreads beyond a local population to a wider geographical areas from Jubbaland regional state of Somalia to Galmudug regional state of Somalia.

Approximation, 1857 people who live in across Somalia and mostly in south and central regions of Somalia are currently suffering eyes infection, a seasonal disease in this nation but Somalis called “Daaf” due to environmental changes (weather, vegetation) that favour breeding of the vector and always caused by poor nutrition and the poor public health system in Somalia. And it will perhaps increase the number of cases of the disease.

Furthermore, dozens of people who lives in Kismayo, Dusamareb, Galkayo, Baidoa, Beledweyn, Jowhar and Mogadishu are affected by a wide-spread of Malaria disease outbreak including pregnant women and children as well as aged people, and for those live internally displaced areas in all the listed regions due to the recent rains, floods and the poor sanitation by means of poor public health systems according to the SOMESHA research, parallel with the damages of public sewages infrastructure in South and central regions of Somalia.

“The virus caused all these infections is known as microbes and can move from person to person in water, through the air, through exchange of or contact with bodily fluids, or be carried by an intermediary species, such as mosquitoes or fleas. These intermediary carriers are called vectors.” Said Mr. Daud Abdi Daud,  SOMESHA Secretary General

“We absolutely declare today, that our country is in an emergency situation where time is critical, the emphasis is usually on interrupting transmission, since it takes time to obtain information relating to the two diseases expansion and the actual cases identification and carriers, and the implementation of the control measures due to the lack of rapid reaction process yet looms in the nation.” Mr. Daud added

However, the Somali Media for Environment, Science, Health and Agriculture (SOMESHA) calls immediate interventions by the United Nations Agencies and other international medical organizations as the Federal Government of Somalia is full of activity to renew the national cabinet ministers of Somalia since its fall-out and collapse.
