Lassa Fever Spreads To Ekiti As Nursing Student Is Diagnosed With In The State by Aminat508(f): 7:11pm On Jan 18, 2016

As states and the federal government intensify efforts to contain the spread of Lassa fever, the Ekiti State government on Monday confirmed a case of the virus in the state.

The state’s Commissioner for Health, Dr. Olurotimi Ojo said the index case; a female student of the School of Nursing, was at the Federal University Teaching Hospital, Ido Ekiti and was responding to treatment.

It was learnt that the patient was admitted to hospital on Sunday and treated for Malaria and Typhoid fever without any corresponding improvement in her health condition.

The latest outbreak of Lassa fever has killed more than 40 people since November 2015 including a medical doctor in Rivers State.

Ekiti is now the 12th state where Lassa fever has been confirmed.

Dr. Ojo, however, said there was no cause for alarm as the situation was under control and the patient placed in the isolation ward

This is not good at all.
And the government does not seem to be taking this incident seriously.
People who have already been diagnosed of the disease are not getting enough doses of Ribavirin because the drug is in short supply.

It wont be funny if this escalates beyond this point.

GEJ may be labelled a corrupt president by APC, he may be called all sort of names just to deceive their gullible followers, but right thinking men will never forget GEJ's action towards Ebola. GEJ never blamed anyone for Ebola outbreak instead he acted the way a president should have acted.
What APC is doing today is opposite what GEJ did during his days to fight Ebola, they are even blaming GEJ for lassa fever...
Posterity will judge us all.
