9-year-old girl drops dead as strange ‘eye-bleeding fever’ spreads

A NEW disease is feared to become even more deadly than the Black Death that killed thousands in 2017 after it killed a nine-year-old child. The girl dropped dead with the symptoms of an extremely contagious viral disease that can kill up to 40% of all infected. She had contracted the bizarre new disease with similarities to the Crimean-Congo hemorrhagic fever.
This disease — usually spread by tick bites or contact with infected livestock — can cause muscle pains, headaches, vomiting, diarrhea and bleeding. And panic is spreading after the sudden death of a girl in the Nakaseke District of Uganda. A rapid response health team was rushed from the local hospital with a body bag to collect her and prevent any possible outbreak.
