The World Health Organization has issued a biohazard warning in Sudan, where a civil war is raging.

The WHO says the capital Khartoum is at “high biohazard risk” after a warring party in Sudan seized a laboratory containing measles and cholera and other dangerous substances and fired technicians working there.

The WHO Representative in Sudan, Nima Saeed Abed, told reporters in Geneva, with whom she spoke via video from Sudan, that the officers were prevented from entering the National Public Health Laboratory.

Nima Saeed Abed, who did not specify which side took over the facility, said: “The main problem is that there is no way for laboratory technicians to come here and safely store the available biological materials and materials.” said.

WHO: 459 dead
Providing information on the ongoing armed conflicts in Sudan, the WHO Representative in Sudan, Nima Saeed Abed, said that a total of 459 people have died and 4,072 have been injured in the conflicts that have taken place in Sudan since 15 April.

Despite the announcement of a ceasefire on the 11th day of clashes between the army and the paramilitary Rapid Support Forces (KDU) in Sudan, explosions and gunfire are heard from time to time, but silence reigns throughout the capital.

Clashes between army and KDC in Sudan
Armed clashes between the Sudanese army and the KDC broke out on April 15 in the Sudanese capital Khartoum and other cities.

Disagreements between the army and the KDC over military security reform, which would provide for “the full participation of the KDU in the army,” have escalated into a heated conflict over the past few months.
