Woman dies of suspected meningococcemia in Zamboanga City

ZAMBOANGA CITY, Feb. 28 (PNA) -- The city health office here has revealed that a pregnant woman died of suspected meningococcemia at the Zamboanga City Medical Center (ZCMC).

Dr. Rodelin Agbulos, city health officer, on Tuesday said that the patient is a 19-year-old resident of Barangay Calarian.

Agbulos said the woman had fever managed at home and was taken to the ZCMC on the third day. She died a few hours after she was confined.

“When she expired, the diagnosis was probable case of meningococcemia with septic shock, which means that there is a strong infection going on in the body,” Agbulos said.

“We were no longer able to get a blood specimen for confirmation because the patient died. After death, you can no longer extract any blood,” he added.

However, he said the symptoms points to the disease--meningococcemia.

He said those who came in contact with the patient were given Rifampicin as prophylaxis to eliminate the possible spread of the disease. (PNA)

"If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved."
