De mars à avril 2016, les autorités sanitaires ont enregistré une nette diminution du nombre de nouveaux cas par rapport aux deux premiers mois de l’année en cours. Malgré une augmentation de 18% dans les nouveaux cas de décès comparativement à la même période l’année dernière, le nombre des cas de janvier à avril 2016 est légèrement inférieur (de moins 1%) en comparaison à la même période l’année dernière (Janvier-Avril 2015). Ces résultats sont dus à l’amélioration de la réponse et une meilleure réactivité dans les zones en alerte rouge ou orange.

From March to April 2016, health authorities have reported a net downturn in the number of cases compared to the first two months of the year. While there is an increase of 18% of new deaths compared to the same period last year, the number of cases from January to April 2016 is thus slightly lower (less 1%) compared to the same period last year (January-April 2015). These good results are to be credited to improved response mechanism and better responsiveness on the areas in red or orange alert.
