A Meningitis Vaccine Campaign in Togo continues to backfire as more than 70 new deaths are being reported as well as more than 800 new cases. The country vaccinated more than 200, 000 people yet the cases have soared since. According to Bloomberg, the West African nation’s outbreak is spreading across the continent as the vaccination program continues.
“Despite the massive vaccination program cases reported climbed to more than 800 and unfortunately 70 people were killed from 29 two weeks ago, ” Ministry of Health official Tsidi Agbeko Tamekloe said in comments broadcast on Lome-based Radio Victoire.
The outbreak in the West African nation was first reported in the Savannah region, 500 kilometers (310 miles) north of the capital, Lome. It then spread to the Central, Kara and Maritime regions.ADVERTISEMENT
So long as the country continues to focus on the vaccination campaigns, we continue to get more and more proof that the vaccines are either the cause of the outbreak or futile solutions. Barbara Low Fisher has a lot to say when it comes to the ineffectiveness and dangers of the meningitis vaccine.
