From WHO, Zambia investigate mystery illness - M&G Online:

Zambian authorities and the World Health Organisation (WHO) have mounted investigations into the unknown disease that has so far claimed four lives in South Africa.

Zambia’s High Commissioner in Pretoria, Leslie Mbula, said on Monday that reports from Zambia indicated that no other person in the country had contracted the “mysterious disease”.

“Zambia has mounted an investigation and is working closely with the WHO. Apart from the two people who died at Morningside Medi-Clinic, there have been no reports of anyone presenting with the illness in Zambia,” Mbula said.
