May 24, 2012 (KHARTOUM) – Nearly 40 students undergoing military training as part of mandatory national service in Sudan’s northern Nile River State have been quarantined after they contracted measles.

The measles outbreak started two days ago at the 49th Brigade camp of national service in the key town of Atbara, raising fears of further infections as well as concerns over health conditions in other camps.

Rabi Ali Mohammed, the coordinator of national service in the state, said that more than 30 students are suspected to have contracted measles and were therefore quarantined at Atbara Educational Hospital for further medical examination.

The national service administration in Sudan requires male students who sat for secondary schools exams to undergo arduous military training at camps in order to be able to join universities and qualify for future employment opportunities. Secondary school students are also required to wear military uniform during three years of study.

Students often complain of experiencing difficulties in the training as it takes place under unfavourable conditions and high temperature during the summer, while parents tend to fret that their sons are too young to cope with military training.

However, the national service official Rabie said that health conditions at the three camps in Atbara and Shendi, another key town in the state, were “under control.”

Meanwhile, an official at the local ministry of health said that 37 cases of measles infections were reported to Atbara Hospital. He denied there were any death cases and described the situation of those infected as “stable”. He further added that all student conscripts at the camp had been vaccinated.

    In DARFUR measles is very common and treated with special leafs and roots of plants.

    I do not know; may be for other regions is problem.

    Where is WHO, UNESCO, MSF ... always they have big mouth and do very little.
    2005 in DARFUR they did very little but they enlarged the hatred among DARFURIANS.

      the curse of God of Israel upon the people of Sudan is near at the door for their anti-African motive. if you don’t give-in for you silly ambitions God will rain fire on you soon.
      you are just forcing the innocent student to army for your hopeless war with the Black African that is why you are getting such punishment.

          See.
          What you say is false. There is no conscription in US or RUSSIA. Only your Jaali barbaric brain says so. Using other people’s children to die for your cause, if you have any cause at all but greed and ampathy.
          I am sure, those infected were used as Guinea Pigs to experiment yet another leathal biological weapon against pure Africans in the Sudan. You will reap what you sow.

          LIER! LIER!! LIER!! GOT CAUGHT RED HANDED!!. IN USA, NO ONE IS FORCED TO JOIN THE MILITARY OR JOIN THE ARMY. AND SO DOES UK, FRANCE AND RUSSIA. Those who join the Army apply as jobs and voluntarily. That’s why they do what they do with passion not forced. IN SOUTH SUDAN, WE WENT TO THE BUSH VOLUNTARILY AND EVEN JOIN THE ARMY NOW VOLUNTARILY. DON’T SAY SOMETHING IF YOU DON’T KNOW IT!!!

        Most of SOUTHERN SUDANESE here in this website are very fluent in using bad, impolite, irrespectable, street women language and even behavior of bad boys.

        Is this what the universities and training centers in SOUTH SUDAN are developing the peoples there with it?

        I HOPE THIS REPETITION WILL MAKE THE UNCHANGEABLE WILL CHANGE and act like HUMAN BEINGS

      It is a devine retribuntion! It is a warning to the NCP criminals that God Abhore those who plan evils against fellow human beings. It is a common knowledge that these conscripts would be used to massacre innocent civilians in South Khrdofan, South Blue Nile, darfur and South Sudan. More stark warnings are coming yet!

        PLS Refer to what I have posted about Measles.
        I don’t believe that Measles is big problem for me as DARFURIAN.

        Most African countries have Measles but they are dealing with IT WITH our African medicines.

        Bear in mind I will NOT be enemy for the peoples of Africa.
        My problem is with persons who make planned violations.

            Xeno, this pathological hatred. Measles is a viral disease and usually goes away by itself, local people use different remedies and believe that it cure it, what is wrong with that. This form of treatment is very common in SS as there is very few doctors and health service is almost zero!

                  SeeMe,

                  Unfortunately for you, the bulk of Southern Sudanese university students were educated in Sudan universities which given your comments about the standard of South Sudan universities redundant ( yet again!!)
                  It should be a concern to both countries regarding the low academic level standards of education in the public universities.

    NCP leadership is making life very difficult for all Sudanese people. Conscripting youths of both sex as young as 14 years is the policy of NCP.
    NCP is spending every penny on military trainings n deadly hardware. No one watches what is happening in Sudan, thus they bomb innocent Sudanese & S. Sudanese with deadly clusters not used anywhere in the globe. Look at what happened in S.Kordofan & BN.
