sleeping sickness        USA

 

Sleeping sickness is an often fatal disease

caused by a parasite

where infected people become prone

to sleeping all day and night

as the disease progresses.

 

It's endemic to 36 countries in Africa,

but most cases occur

in the Democratic Republic of the Congo.

 

There are two kinds of sleeping sicknesses,

both caused by Trypanosoma parasites.

 

The most common form of the disease,

and the one treated by this new drug,

is caused by Trypanosoma brucei gambiense.

 

Humans are the primary reservoir for the parasite,

and it is spread to others by tsetse flies.

 

WHO estimates

there were roughly 300,000 cases per year

in the late '90s,

but the number of cases has now dropped

to fewer than 1,000 cases per year.
