Note: Due to the large influx of intelligence received by NDG's Intelligence Team throughout this week over various fields of intelligence interest, a specific title would've been far too complex.
Yellow Fever, Brazil:
The Brazilian government has released that 72 confirmed cases, and 550 suspected cases, of YELLOW FEVER have been documented within Brazil. This endemic has resulted in 40 confirmed deaths. While the Brazilian and US Governments indicate specific areas where this has occurred (Acre, Amapá, Amazonas, Distrito Federal (including the capital city of Brasília), Goiás, Maranhão, Mato Grosso, Mato Grosso do Sul, Minas Gerais, Pará, Rondônia, Roraima, Tocantins, Bahia, Paraná, Piauí, Rio Grande do Sul, Santa Catarina, and São Paulo.), it is the recommendation of this analyst that ALL persons visiting or located in Brazil receive an up to date YELLOW FEVER VACCINE immediately or before departing to Brazil. In most cases of the virus, symptoms will include fever, chills, a general loss of appetite, nausea, muscle pains (particularly muscle pain in the back), and headaches. Typically, the patient will see the symptoms improve within FIVE days. However, some cases have seen the viral symptoms return to the patient within a day of improving, the fever comes back and abdominal pain occurs. At this point, liver damage begins beign sustained causing jaundice. If this occurs, the risk of bleeding and complications involving the kidneys is also increased. Again, it is VERY STRONGLY advised that all personnel in, or preparing to depart for, Brazil receive a YELLOW FEVER VIRUS VACCINE as soon as possible.
Personnel in the MADRID, SPAIN area should continue to be on the alert for rapid deterioration of protests scheduled through 10FEB2017 as discussed in last weeks NDG IntSum.
