More evidence of the deliberate spread of Kaposi's sarcoma in Africa

More evidence of the deliberate spread of Kaposi's sarcoma in Africa

The sudden onset of Kaposi's sarcoma clusters among black people in South Africa from 1949 onwards, provided a reason for striking examinations and apparent helpless interpretations.

As soon as the National Party came to power, the first edition of the South African Journal of Clinical Science dedicated the first 25 pages to this comparatively quite insignificant disease, in March 1950, describing 41 pages.

Between 1911 and 1947, there was not a single case of Kaposi's sarcoma in South Africa and only six cases of Kaposi's Sarcoma in Southern Africa (South Africa, former Protectorate of Bechuanaland, former Rhodesia, Mozambique, for South West Africa.)

Oettle explains the rarity of Kaposi's sarcoma during the period 1911-1947: "The diagnosis of Kaposi's sarcoma was missed by pathologist and clinician alike."

However, he does not give any foundation for his reproach to support his claim that there had always been a lot of Kaposi's sarcoma cases in South Africa. No such numbers for South Africa were checked again or publicly again afterwards. 

Between 1949-1953, there were 86 cases of which 82 were 'Bantus,' and of these, 63 were from Transvall (approx. 15 per year). 

Besides this extraordinary rare among black people, it also became remarkable that of the ten pale-skinned cases who fell ill between 1942-1952, six of them were women, of whom five were Afrikaners, who were classified as 'Aryans.'

Since the hitherto known figures confirm roughly 15 times more men than women suffer from Kaposi's sarcoma, these results of 1942-1952, can also be a pointer to a new form of spreading of this disease in South Africa.

A similar noticeable incidence among women was reported on from the South African province Natal from 1950-1955. Seventeen African men and eight African women succumbed to the disease there.

From 1953-1955, the reported number of cases suddenly dropped spontaneously; there were 21 cases in South Africa and eight in the Transvaal, less than a year.
