Students from Kisii University, Kenya and the general public at large have been warned against kissing carelessly due to an outbreak of Human papilloma virus, which has seen several people admitted at Kisii level 5 hospital after testing positive to the disease.
HPV is an infectious viral disease which cause mouth cancer and is transmitted through infected body fluids and that’s why people have been warned against incessant and careless kissing.
The symptoms include sore throat, severe headache, High fever, Vomit and abdominal pains.
“We were told that public health officers from this area are working round the clock to know the root cause of this. But we are being advised even on WhatsApp groups to avoid kissing and exchanging body fluids,” A third year public health student from Kisii University lamented.
The HPV is gradually circulating Kenya and gradually making its way into the Southern parts of Africa and will soon hit Africa at large.
