19 Persons Die Of Lassa Fever In Bauchi by LORDofODDS(m): 12:12am On Apr 17, 2020
No fewer than 19 persons have died this year following the resurgence of Lassa fever in Bauchi State.

The State Deputy Governor, Senator Baba Tela, disclosed this at a press conference held on Thursday at the Banquet Hall, Government House, Bauchi.

He said no fewer than 48 persons were under watch and undergoing treatment for the deadly disease in the state.

He said, “It is not as if we have gotten rid of Lassa fever completely in the state; No, we have not.

“And so far as at week 14 of our campaign, the total number of death to Lassa fever is 19 and we don’t have any new case so far.

“And we are following up contacts of about 48 process and those 48 have been confirmed and are under medication and they are recovering fast.”

The deputy governor, who is also the Chairman, Bauchi State Task Force Committee on COVID-19 and Lassa Fever, stated that the biggest challenge the state has is that there is a low level of awareness among the citizens.

He urged the people of the state to always report any suspected case of Lassa fever in the state, adding that early discovery and treatment could help patients recover.
