In Burundi, three people die as a result of an unknown nosebleed-causing disease


Three people have died in Burundi from a mysterious disease that can cause nosebleeds. The fatalities have occurred in the northeastern region of the African nation, close to the borders with Rwanda and Tanzania.

In addition, it is said that they passed away within 24 hours of developing their symptoms. Wellbeing bosses have now been dispatched to the Kirundo and Muyinga regions to research the idea of the sickness.

Brief Overview

According to the local news website SOS Media Burundi, the illness’s symptoms include abdominal pain, bleeding from the nose, headache, fever, vomiting, and dizziness. The potentially lethal Marburg and Ebola viruses share similar symptoms.

According to reports from the ministry, a student aged 18 was admitted to the hospital last week with symptoms such as bloody vomiting, diarrhea, and nosebleeds. They reportedly added, “He died the same day, and a dignified and secure burial was reserved for him.”

Because of a current outbreak in Tanzania, the student’s death was likely caused by the Marburg virus, according to health professionals.

End Note

SOS Media Burundi claims a team was sent out, but the analysis returned negative for both Marburg and Ebola.

According to the World Health Organization, the Marburg virus is a viral hemorrhagic fever with a fatality rate of up to 88 percent. Fever, fatigue, bloody vomiting, and diarrhea are among the symptoms.
