Lassa fever in Yobe,Four quarantined

Lassa fever is spreading in Nigeria.....



The Yobe state commissioner for health Dr Bello Kawuwa, says four people are being quarantined over suspected Case of Lassa fever.

Kawuwa says seven people were initially held, but three had been discharged after clinical analysis.

The commissioner said though, earlier results did not indicate that the four people have Lassa fever, a second laboratory test would be carried out on them.
“In July, about seven cases of suspected Lassa fever were reported in Yobe ."
“They were subjected to normal clinical appraisal and three of the seven were looking less of Lassa fever.We have isolated the cases to prevent unnecessary contact."

“Our epidemic response team has also gone to the affected communities to carryout contact-tracing as well as educate the people on how to deal with the situation,” Kawuwa said.
