Doctors educate market women on lassa fever in Osun

By Olawale Adewale, The Nigerian Voice, Osogbo 

Members of the Nigeria Medical Association (NMA), Osun State Chapter today visited major markets in Osogbo, capital of Osun State on awareness tour to enlighten market women on lassa fever and its symptoms.

The NMA Chairman, Dr Tokunbo Olajumoke told the market women that the outbreak of lassa fever in Ondo state was a delicate signal for the people of Osun state and urged the traders to be careful with rats on the raw food stuff.

The markets visited by the doctors include Akindeko and Olu-Ode markets. Olajumoke said the sensitization was aimed at educating the traders on the existence of lassa fever, the symptoms of the fever and the appropriate steps to take in case such symptoms are noticed.

According to him, “We came to the markets to talk to people on lassa fever which has been ravaging most of the state in Nigeria. As we are all aware, the vector (rats) are very close to the people in the market and when they (rats) touch what they (traders) sell, the buyers who consume the food would be infected.”

“It is very paramount to sensitize the traders on this and that’s why we embarked on this awareness tour to major markets in Osogbo and we are talking to the people in the local language and in a manner that they can understand and get the message so that we can prevent lassa fever rather than waiting to treat people when infected.”

“As you are aware, lassa fever is already ravaging Ondo state which is very close to Osun and there have been reported cases of lassa fever in Osun. We have recorded a death in Osun as a result of lassa fever at the Obafemi Awolowo University Teaching Hospital in Osun here and it was confirmed. Also, 40 people are currently quarantined at isolated centers and they are under close examination to determine if they have been infected. We realised that prevention is better than cure and that was why we came out to sensitize traders today,” Olajumoke said.

    consideration whenever individuals are actually using web purchasing as
    a technique for accessing to the Net. Some regulations prohibit sellers from developing
    internet organizations. This consists of the USA, Spain,
    Italy, Germany and Japan. Despite this rule, there
    are actually millions of merchants on the web today
    and also provided that these companies observe the policies as well as rules that have been established due to the nations

    taking care of refund demands. This supervisor likewise monitors all
    client information, preps documents for administration and
    also sustains the provider’s Web site. In order to run an ecommerce Web
    shop, this supervisor needs to have to understand exactly how to
    execute certain functions, like, when a customer purchases or even gets into
    a product purchase, the Web outlet supervisor
    need to enter this transaction right into a data bank.
    From the database, the Web outlet manager can fetch
    as well as arrange the relevant information and afterwards
    deliver it to the appropriate spot, such as an ecommerce Internet store

    Ecommerce Internet outlets can easily give a large range of services and products.
    For instance, some Web outlets give fashion jewelry, electronic devices, clothes, health spa products, residence items, presents, gift
    certifications and other tangible items and solutions.

    Some ecommerce Internet establishments to market abstract
    possessions, including licenses, licenses to

    you don’t mind. I was curious to know how you center yourself and
    clear your mind prior to writing. I have had a difficult time clearing my mind in getting my thoughts out there.
    I truly do enjoy writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15
    minutes tend to be wasted just trying to figure out how to begin. Any suggestions or hints?
