The National Ministry of Health reports that it’s close to eradicating the crippling parasitic guinea worm in South Sudan. The ministry said on Wednesday that South Sudan will be declared free of guinea worm over the next two years.

Statistical information from the World Health Organization shows that 97 percent of all guinea worm cases are in South Sudan, while the remaining three percent are to be found in Chad, Mali and Ethiopia.
