INTERNATIONAL NOTES


SMALLPOX Sudan


On March 17, 1965 the health administration of the
Sudan notified the World Health Organization of one fatal
case of smallpox in Waddayoma Village in the Wad Medani
area (Northern Gezira District, Blue Nile Province).
Smallpox had not previously been reported in the Sudan
since March 30, 1963. The area where this fatal case
occurred was well covered by a mass vaccination campaign
in 1964 and revaccination is now being undertaken. It is
now the cotton picking season in the Wad Medani area and
many workers come from great distances. A search for
the source of infection has so far been unsuccessful, but
it appears likely that the infection was imported.


(Reported in the Weekly Epidemiological Record of the
World Health Organization, March 26, 1965).
