Madagascar: un Français meurt de la peste

Le cap des 100 morts est franchi, avec 107 morts répertoriés.

Un quadragénaire, résident depuis longtemps à Toamasina, à Madagascar, est mort samedi de la peste pulmonaire. Pour éviter la propagation de l'épidémie, son corps a été enterré dans une fosse commune le jour même.

Déclarée depuis plus de deux mois, l'épidémie de peste pulmonaire ne cesse de faire des victimes à Madagascar. A Toamasina, le Français est le douzième patient à décéder des suites de la maladie. Les premières victimes de la ville ont contracté la bactérie dans un taxi-brousse reliant Antananarivo et Toamasina, fin août. En effet, un des passagers du taxi était porteur de la peste, il venait d'Ankazobe, et est décédé à Moramanga, le 28 août dernier. Des milliers de personnes ont été contaminés depuis le début de l'épidémie. Sur les milliers de cas enregistrés depuis août, 680 sont guéris, et 220 sont encore sous traitement.
