EP-2022-000183-KEN Epidemic Kenya Due to the anticipated start of March, April and May long rains, there is likelihood of geographical increase in the coming weeks/months for the two diseases. The mosquito vector will most likely increase and hence the two vector-borne diseases and even the regular outbreak of Rift Valley fever is like to emerge and compound the whole situation in more counties than the ones under consideration. The last time Chikungunya epidemic was in 2016 and then it affected 4 counties, and hence our prediction is more than the 2 counties (Wajir - Mandera) will fall into the response mode in the coming two months. Yellow Fever epidemic on the other hand was in 1992/93 and the current scenario may extend to more than 6 counties (Isiolo, Wajir, Garissa, Baringo, Elgeyo Markwet, West Pokot and Turkana). This is the earliest opportunity to indicate the likelihood of increase of needs on new geographical areas beyond the current areas. based on the emergency outbreak declared by the government, YF and Chikungunya are vector borned diseases actually spreading in the mentioned localities.

Indeed, this area is experiencing intense drought and very high temperatures at the end of the dry season. Moreover, this is the period during which the fields are burnt. It is therefore from these burnt fields that the fire started, which was at the origin of the present fire. Fire quickly spread to other nearby houses and was aggravated by the strength of the winds. The city does not have a fire department, so the inhabitants tried to put out the fire with the means at hand. Unfortunately, the fire continued until the night of February 26, 2022. After a few hours of calm, the fire started again on 28 February 2022, affecting new villages. The assessment made by volunteers and local authorities shows 191 families, i.e. 955 people, including 171 men, 385 women and 399 children.

Civilian casualties were reported, and up to 75,000 people (15,000 families) were forced to move out from the neighbourhoods or between houses where the main hostilities and fighting took place. Most of the displaced people have sought safety with family and friends in Al Hasakeh city and its surrounding neighbourhoods, while others have been hosted at seven temporary shelters.

Families depending on daily labour for their livelihoods lost their income due to the lockdown and curfews not only in Al-Hasakeh city but also in the governorate at large. While the lockdown has been lifted, there is still a partial curfew in effect and movements are strictly controlled.
