  • Description:
    Analysis of provisional reports for most of calendar year 1999 show that the endemic countries remaining outside of Sudan, Nigeria and Ghana have reduced their numbers of cases by about –37% since 1998. The overall number of cases outside of Sudan was reduced by only –5% (due mainly to a 54% increase in cases detected in Ghana), but the number of endemic villages outside of Sudan is expected to decrease by about – 20%, from 3,267 to ~2,700 villages (Figures 1&2, Table 1). Chad was confirmed to have broken transmission in 1998, apparently detecting no cases at all for a full calendar year for the first time in 1999. Cameroon, meanwhile, recorded a significant reduction in imported cases from Nigeria: 8 in January- August 1999, vs. 19 in the same period of 1998 ( Table 3).
