First case of Lassa fever recorded in Lagos

The first case of Lassa fever has been recorded in Lagos state. Minister of Healt!h, Isaac Adewole, who made this known, said the patient is a 25 year old student of the Ahmadu Bello University who traveled from Zaria. He said the patient has now been isolated at the Accident and Emergency (A&E) unit of the hospital. Ribavirin is also available.

He asked that residents of the state must not panic as government is working to stop the spread of the disease.
The Chairman, Medical Advisory Committee (CMAC), Dr. Olufemi Fasanmade said:
“Containment area being devised, ribavirin available. We will use theatre in A&E as isolation ward. No need to panic. But limit movement to A&E if not necessary. Our trained staff on ground.”
Lassa fever is transmitted by infected rodents.

Damn! We overpowered and conquered ebola.. I can't decipher why this lassa fever is being given time and space to ravage our people! Wait.... it might be because a mallam with no experience is the minister of health! I miss our former minister of health, Mr chukwu! That man is a genius... PMB had better done something real quick





Long Live LIB!

What is the one good thing that has come out of Bornu state? Bornu state gave Nigeria lassa fever ( this viral disease was first found in 1969 in Lasaa, Bornu State thus the name Lassa fever) and Bornu state gave Nigeria Buhari's wv dictator friend Abacha and the same Bornu state gave Nigeria Boko haram. Bornu state is a drain on our resources.

Prof isaac Adewole is a mallam?
Fool!!!
Ps... We were lucky with ebola as luth wasnt open then! Pls about lassa fever and see why such conditions are tough to handle! Who knew the guy had lassa? Could u have stopped him from traveling down to lagos,if he thought he just had malaria or typhoid fever ?
Mumu! Contact tracing is the hardest part of an outbreak!
