How to spot the rarer and more common Mendelian populations in Madagascar
Posted February 24, 2019 08:21:08More than a third of Madagascar’s population, including more than 10 million people, are expected to be at risk of being affected by the coronavirus, a World Health Organization (WHO) official said Tuesday.
Mendelian is the name given to the genetically related relatives of the people who make up Madagascar’s Mendelians.
Maintaining that the population in Madagascar, which is now in the process of recovering from the coronivirus, is relatively stable, Dr. David Pomeranzini, the WHO’s Director of Health Services and Social Protection, said the situation in the region is not particularly concerning.
“It’s not a crisis, it’s a stabilization,” he told reporters in a briefing at the WHO headquarters in Geneva.
“We have been able to maintain our population and stability for many years,” he said, adding that the country has been able “to maintain the levels of vaccination we have had, which has been 100 percent.”
Mendelsians are one of the most closely related populations of humans to the world.
The term is derived from the word mendi, meaning “to make.”
The most common Mendelsian variant, which scientists are still working to identify, is the one that causes the disease, called the African Mendelial.
But other Mendelials are also found, such as the one found in the Congo, the African African.
The most recent cases in Madagascar occurred last month, when a 24-year-old woman from the village of Jambok, who had recently moved to Madagascar, became infected.
The case is believed to have been linked to a family member who was infected, and a second case was found in April.
The WHO said it is working to track the spread of the virus in Madagascar and is urging the government to implement a plan to protect people from the disease.
“The only way to prevent an outbreak is to get rid of all human carriers and stop all travel to Madagascar,” Pomerantzini said.
“This is what is happening in Madagascar.”
The virus is spread primarily through close contact between people.
While most people can be vaccinated against it, a high proportion of people who contract it will still spread the disease and be able to infect others.
The virus can be spread through the air and through contaminated food.
The country has a population of more than 9.8 million people and about 7 million people are thought to have died from the virus.
It is not clear how many people will become infected with the disease when it finally leaves Madagascar, but officials have estimated that at least 1.7 million people have died.
The disease has also infected more than 700 people, most of whom are thought not to have had direct contact with the person who contracted it.
