Lassa Fever Confirmed In Lagos

The case, which was diagnosed at the Lagos University Teaching Hospital (LUTH), Idi-Araba, involves a 25-year-old student from the Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria.





The patient is said to have been admitted first at a private hospital in Ojokoro area of Lagos State.
According to the Minister of Health, Professor Isaac Adewole, the patient is responding to treatment.
The death of a Lassa Fever victim at the National Hospital in Abuja, the nation’s capital, had brought the total number of deaths to 43 in the country, from 10 states.

Announcing the death at the National Hospital on Wednesday, the Minister of Health, Professor Isaac Adewole, called on health workers at all levels to be more vigilant and look out for patients with symptoms of Lassa Fever.

The Minister advised residents of affected states not to panic but to maintain high level vigilance and present themselves for test if they feel unhealthy or they feel symptoms of Lassa Fever which include high fever, stooling, tiredness and vomiting among others.


He cautioned that self-medication should be avoided at this period.

I cleaned and dusted the house this morning like never before. I hate rats, i can't stand rats. I made sure there is no entrance door for it to enter my house, and even if they do find a way by chance, they can't stay cos there is no room..
A sure way to combat the lassa fever is by having good sanitary hygiene.

I hope paranoia doesnt set in..

How do we prevent it? Is it like Ebola virus?

ELENA (HER MAJESTY) said...

@stella...can u rid all slums and hood in nigeria of rats? D answer is no.
Nway,i thought the cmd of luth refuted d claims earlier on.

Shyla said...

Only if people learn to live in good and healthy environment. Some of these sicknesses are manageable if we eradicate rats as much as we can. There are rat gums that can catch rats. Especially these mice. But no, we humans love when kasala don burst then we start measures. Its only a pity innocent people will become affected and infected due to carelessness. As e don enter Lagos, na only God go save us cos the movement rate to this town is high, especially after the Yuletide season. People drying garri, zobo drinkers and kunu whatever should ease off for now. Zobo was the major cause one period when it hit Edo state which was synonymous with lassa fever, but now the north has taken over.
Hope this gets contained though.

Like i said before, when Ebola came, we overcame it by God's Grace. We shall overcome this too by HIS Grace.

If ebola had started in other states,it won't be the same story. It is obvious some states are just too crippled,they can't contain common malaria fever talkless of lassa. May God save us all.

mrs hot ice said...

i remember when i was a student at ambrose alli university,dis was one of our biggest fears as students were dying from the virus.those market women that spread garri to dry giving the rats opportunity to walk and urinate on it. no more garri for me and my family for nw oo,tank God i still hav from last year.semo,wheat,poundo and amala toh badt for nw.God save us all.the worst part is recognising the symptoms before its too late as early detection is the key

Lord, help us o. On the good side, this disease will curb our men and women from been randy, it will also make married men eat more of their wives food. Hehehehe..

On the bad side it's still a disease and needs to be curbed and eradicated.

Imagine Buhari was Our president during the Ebola saga....we wouldn't have been able to get out of it..clueless old man

j baby said...

I read this morning where the minister of health was blaming GEJ for Lassa fever n I was like why blame the man for your incompetence. When we had Ebola there was a quick response.

God will always protect his people but clean environment applies here.leaving food remnants that will attract rodents and exposing bin area should be avoided pls. Don't expose food and soups. I don't know if light is steady now in naija but if not, buy what you can consume for now. Health is wealth ooo my people.

What is Buhari suppose to do about this please?? Come out and catch the rat in your house or what??

Why does he have minister of health?? Why are their health practitioners?? Please sometimes let us be practical with or comments

I don't remember Goodluck stopping ebola from spreading but the doctor who sacrificed her health..

Anonymous said...

@Mao, enough of ur cheap lies. Was it the GEJ that acted swiftly during the Ebola crisis? Pls dont give someone's credit to another. It was Fashola who worked tirelessly then not GEJ.

Fab Mum said...

And avoid contact with sick people as you can't tell who has the virus..

It can be contacted thru body fluid like sweat, blood etc

Blaq boi said...

One of the prophecies by daddy adeboye was that we should pray for against the sudden break of dangerous disease in this country....well...

Fab Mum said...

Yes...
Deadlier than ebola
As you can sometime mistake the symptoms for malaria giving it a chance to become chronic..

Can be contacted same way ebola spreads

I am the queen and the boss of this blog said...

Is this a joke or something?...

Fab Mum said...

Lmao
How can he blame Gej for lassa fever??

Meanwhile the person who was confirmed with lassa fever in Lagos, I don't think he got it in Lagos.. I think he just came into Lagos and happen to have had the symptoms...

The General's Wife said...

Inukwa blame GEJ.hian!

We shall overcome.

Lassa was one of our major fear as student of Ambrose Alli University. Those days u always hear of student who die from Lassa fever. It is quite common in Ekpoma and Lassa is not a new disease.there is a hospital in irrua were specialist trained on Lassa virus are maybe dey could be contacted to help manage the spread.

You stink of ignorance! !!!..bear it in mind that Ebola was curbed by Fasholas Doggedness and Fashola is APC. Your GEJ is still dumb.

I hope you know howmany times Nigeria had outbreak of lassafever since 1967 when it was first discovered.
What did GEJ do when there was Lassa fever outbreak in PH back then? I did not say Ebola, there was Lassa fever in PH bk then when 3 UPTH doctors were quarantined.
Please get educated!
