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)
