Lassa Fever And Why You Need To Take It Seriously (Must Read)

The Minister of Health, Isaac Adewole, who made this known on Saturday in Abakaliki, Ebonyi State when he paid a courtesy call on the state Governor, David Umahi described the recent outbreak in the state which killed 4 Medical health workers as unfortunate.

According to the Adewole, most doctors treat the deadly disease as if it is any other ordinary disease and do not wear protective medical apparels while treating patients.

He said: “What is worrisome is that when doctors and healthcare workers become infected, then the country is in danger because everyone that will go and meet that doctor or nurse is at risk.

“Lass fever requires close contact between the blood of an infected person and healthcare workers looking out for him. Once you wear gloves, wear protective gown, you can’t have Lassa fever. but we have discovered that doctors and nurses treat Lassa as if it is just ordinary flu or malaria, but it is not”.

The Nigeria Center for Disease Control (NCDC) recently said that the outbreak of Lassa fever in the country has spread to 10 states with 61 confirmed cases.
