According to the same survey, the prevalence of SCT in the districts of Mbale and Sironko in the East was 20-28%, whilst the districts of Mbarara and Ntungamo in the West had 1-5%.No follow-up surveys have been conducted over the past 60 years.African admixture in Europe refers to the Eurasian presence of human genetic polymorphisms that are considered to be evidence for movements of people from Africa to Eurasia in both the prehistoric and the historical past.Although low levels of African admixture are present throughout the European continent, recent genetic studies conclude that significantly higher levels of admixture exist in areas of the Iberian Peninsula (notably Portugal and southern and western Spain) than in the rest of the continent.This study found a higher death rate from all causes among persons aged 5–74 years with sickle cell disease than previously estimated using other methods.Death rates were higher among persons in California and Georgia aged 5–74 years with sickle cell disease than among African Americans in California and Georgia or among persons of similar age in the general population in these two states.Guðrún Guðmundsdóttir and Björn Thorsteinsson translated Ebeling’s book into Icelandic. This saga mentions two possible Vikings who may have sailed to the Yucatan region of Mexico - Gudleif Gudlaugson (c.1025 AD) and Björn Breiðvíkingakappi (c.965).Guðmundsdóttir and Thorsteinsson claim that the There are also three traditions of the Norse Sagas that mention that in 965 or 986 Ari Marson set sail from Ireland in an attempt to reach Greenland.
Sickle cell disease can cause pain and other serious problems, such as infection, acute chest syndrome, and stroke, and can lead to lifelong disabilities and reduced life expectancy.

This suggests the tradition of the “White Lords” who had visited Mexico before the Spanish were the Vikings. In his text, Ebeling talked about how Moctezuma II welcomed Hernán Cortés as Quetzalcoatl.
Background: The first survey on sickle cell disease (SCD) done in Uganda in 1949, reported the district of Bundibugyo in Western Uganda to have the highest sickle cell trait (SCT) prevalence (45%).
This is believed to be the highest in the whole world.
SCA accounts for approximately 16.2% of all pediatric deaths in Uganda.
