The situation in Dolo Ado refuge in Ethiopia is becoming increasingly critical. Somali refugees, who run to this refuge from famine in their country, are facing an outbreak of measles detected between the asylees.
According to the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (ACTUR), this outbreak could cause a high mortality rate, in addition to developing serious diseases due to malnutrition of the population. At this time, there have been 47 cases and three deaths attributed to measles in the camp of Kobe, home to 25,000 people.
UN said the situation “could reverse the progress in recent weeks to stabilize conditions of Somali refugees.” (BG)
