New Outbreak Of Lassa Fever In Oyo State by eke419: 10:16am On Oct 25, 2014
There has been a fresh outbreak of Lassa fever in Oyo state. This comes barely one week after Nigeria was officially declared Ebola-free. The spread of the hemorrhagic fever has been confirmed by State Commissioner for Health, Dr Muyiwa Gbadegesin.

Gbadegesin, who spoke to journalists in Ibadan, said there has been a confirmation of no fewer than 10 cases of Lassa fever in the state, three of which came in from another state. He reiterated that the government was in total control of the situation.
“We are already working to bring it under control. We are doing the best to curtail it. We have what it takes to manage it very well. I only want to appeal to our people to be very hygienic and when they feel that something is wrong with our system, we should go to the hospital for proper diagnosis of their sickness and treatment,” the commissioner said.

No fears! If we could contain ebola, then we can contain this. All we need is the same or even higher commitment.

No time to point fingers.

Educate the public on this and put all measures in place, and it'll also be a thing of the past.

We can do it, again.

I was about travelling tomorrow to Ib.
Since this has been confirmed, people should inform their respective family members to be vigilanf.
At markets, commuter buses and busstops and hospitals too because it can be transferred from person to person.

More importantly is to be careful of what you buy to eat and always use tissue papers when opening doors etc.
