Bayelsa Intensifies Campaign On Monkey Pox And Releases Emergency Phone lines

Oh My Goodness!!!

Bayelsa State Government has intensified public enlightenment ‎and civic engagement in its efforts to curb the spread of the viral monkeypox disease.

The government urged residents of the state to report all suspected cases of the disease by using hotlines 08066987752 and‎ 08035474676, to get rapid response team.‎

A statement issued on Sunday by Commissioner for Information, Daniel Iworiso-Markson, said government has commenced ‎sensitization campaign and advocacy visits to communities on the need to reassure the indigenes of intervention and activities in curbing further spread of monkeypox.

He added that out of the number of those affected and quarantined at the Niger Delta University Teaching Hospital (NDUTH) Okolobiri, many are already showing signs of recovery.

Iworiso-Markson explained that two of the index cases and the Doctor affected by the disease have since fully recovered and discharged and expressed joy that‎ so far no death has been recorded.

He said, “To further allay the fears and reassure Bayelsans of government’s efforts in curbing the disease, let me make it clear that we are on top of the situation. However it is important for people to take note of the fact that prevention is better than cure.

“Hence, they are required to always wash their hands, avoid monkeys, bushmeats and dead animals as well as be on the look out for symptoms which often manifests as various stages of rash and an intense weakness of the body, severe pains, among other things.”
