Over 50 Persons Catch Mosquito-Borne Diseases in Deir Ballout Camp for Palestine Refugees

Paramedics at the mobile clinic in Deir Ballout Camp, north of Syria, kept record of over 50 cases of mosquito-borne diseases among civilians taking shelter in the area.

A paramedic attributed the phenomenon to the spread of mosquito bites which he said cause infections, high fever, swelling, and redness. In a number of cases, civilians have had respiratory disorders and severe pains.

The concerned persons received oral steroid adrenaline drugs and antihistamine injections. A number of cases were transferred to the hospital.

Medics in the camp called on the local council in Gindires region to spray insecticides across the area and clean out the Efrin River and wetlands.

Sometime earlier, the residents launched a cry for help over the propagation of Leishmania disease among the refugees. Coetaneous Leishmaniasis, is a type of skin disease caused by Leishmania Tropica, also known as the “Aleppo Evil”, “Aleppo ulcer”, “Aleppo boil”, “Aleppo button” or “habbat halab”. It can produce permanent disfiguring scars on the face, especially of young people.

Such types of diseases are mainly found in areas associated with poor waste disposal. Water shortage, poor sanitation, and lack of other public services combine to create ripe conditions for the transmission of water/mosquito-borne infections.
