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.

    My coder is trying to persuade me to move to .net from PHP.
    I have always disliked the idea because of the expenses.
    But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using Movable-type on numerous websites for about a year and am nervous about switching to another platform.
    I have heard very good things about blogengine.net.
    Is there a way I can transfer all my wordpress content into it?

    Any kind of help would be greatly appreciated!

    I was wondering if you ever thought of changing the layout of your
    blog? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could
    connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of
    text for only having 1 or 2 pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?

    Hi this is kinda of off topic but I was wondering if blogs use WYSIWYG
    editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.
    I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding experience so I
    wanted to get advice from someone with experience. Any help
    would be greatly appreciated!

    I’m amazed, I must say. Seldom do I encounter a blog
    that’s equally educative and entertaining, and without a doubt, you have hit the nail on the head.
    The problem is something which too few men and women are speaking intelligently
    about. Now i’m very happy that I came across this in my search for something concerning this.

    Wonderful blog! Do you have any helpful hints
    for aspiring writers? I’m planning to start my own blog soon but I’m a little lost
    on everything. Would you advise starting with a free platform like WordPress or
    go for a paid option? There are so many options out there that I’m completely confused
    .. Any recommendations? Bless you!

    Hmm it appears like your website ate my first comment (it was super long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I submitted and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog. I as well am an aspiring blog writer but I’m still new to the whole thing. Do you have any tips for first-time blog writers? I’d really appreciate it.|
