Information hitting the PoliticsNGR newsdesk this afternoon indicated that the dreaded Monkeypox sickness has hit Rivers state.

According to the commissioner of health in Rivers state, Princewill Chike, 3 suspected cases have been recorded. Chike told newsmen;

“In Rivers State, we have three suspected cases already.One is from the Rumuorlumeni area. We saw it and think it is not a serious matter so we have ruled it out.

Another one is a thirteen-year-old boy at Eneka. We discovered they took the boy to a native doctor. The parents think they can handle it the native way.

We have activated our isolation centres and we have put all our Health centres on red alert.The University of Port Harcourt Teaching Hospital, UPTH, Braithwaite Memorial Specialist Hospital and all our Primary Health Centres have been reactivated.

We can assure you that there is no course for alarm because we are on top of the situation,” he said.

Monkeypox reportedly has no vaccine and 12 cases have been recorded in Bayelsa state.

Na wa oo, why is it that every year we must hear about a new deadly disease which mostly comes from animals, The animals most times doesn't have this disease affecting them as it affects human beings, maybe it is high time we stop the killing and eating of animals anyhow.

Considering doing a roof parapet?
check out price comparison between a concrete cast in suite against polystyrene parapet.
Polystyrene parapet is light weight and doesn't have much impact on the land.
excellent usage on swampy environment.

How can Africans stop eating bush-meat? Do we want bush-meat to be more than Africans in population and we should be smiling at bush-meat when we should kill and eat it? I cannot understand what you're trying to say.
