In western Senegal, more than 100 fishermen have contracted an unknown disease, APA reports citing Dacar News.

The center of the disease is located between the port cities of Rufisk and Mbour, near the capital Dakar.

Patients have skin rashes in the form of scabs. It is assumed that the source of the unknown disease is on the high seas, as it infected only fishermen who went fishing between Rufisk and Mbur.

All patients with symptoms are hospitalized at the stadium in Rufisk.
