Lassa Fever Hits Delta State, Four Hospitalized, One Dead

Delta State has recorded a fresh outbreak of Lassa Fever with four persons said to be hospitalized and one confirmed dead, SaharaReporters has learned.

According to a source, at the State Ministry of Health, Asaba, two out of the five confirmed cases of Lassa Fever disease were brought to the Federal Medical Center, Asaba for medical attention where one died while three are currently receiving treatment in a government hospital outside the state capital.

It was gathered that the disease which re-emerged last two weeks in the state has thrown several hospitals and a general public into a panic.

Meanwhile, the State Commissioner for Health, Nicholas Azinge who confirmed the fresh outbreak of the disease said so far the state has only recorded two cases of the Lassa Fever,  assuring Deltans that the relevant authorities are on top of the situation as there is no need for residents to be alarmed since the state was able to effectively handle the disease the last time it emerged.

“So far two confirmed cases of Lassa Fever disease has been recorded in the State which was brought to the Federal Medical Center, Asaba for medical attention. The first case brought to the FMC, Asaba was that of a 43-year-old male resident in the state who was successfully treated and later referred to Irrua Specialist Hospital, Edo State and is responding to treatment,” Mr. Azinge disclosed. 

The health commissioner, said the family members of the man and the ambulance driver who conveyed him to the hospital are being closely watched while tracing others in contact with him are on-going, adding that he was in contact with his Anambra State Commissioner for Health counterpart regarding the second case which was brought in from Anambra. 

The commissioner said the corpse will be handed over to his colleague so that proper burial arrangement is carried out so as not to expose more persons to the disease, saying all the Primary Health Care centres in Delta State have been activated, sensitization activities geared up and advised residents to report any case of malaria and typhoid fever cases that are not responding to treatment to the nearest medical facility as early report of cases will save lives.
 
Mr. Azinge, on behalf of the state government, has donated personal protective items to the Management of the Federal Medical Centre (FMC), Asaba as part of its collaborative efforts to address the spread of the disease and effectively curtail the spread.

    May I just say what a relief to uncover someone who actually knows what they
    are discussing on the internet. You certainly understand how to bring an issue to
    light and make it important. More and more people should read this and
    understand this side of the story. I was surprised that you’re not
    more popular given that you surely possess the gift.

    I wish to show some thanks to you just for bailing me out of this incident. As a result of scouting throughout the the net and finding recommendations that were not helpful, I assumed my life was gone. Being alive devoid of the approaches to the problems you’ve sorted out all through this article is a crucial case, as well as those which may have in a wrong way affected my career if I had not discovered your site. Your ability and kindness in playing with a lot of things was valuable. I’m not sure what I would have done if I had not discovered such a step like this. I am able to at this time look ahead to my future. Thanks a lot so much for the expert and effective guide. I will not hesitate to suggest your web site to anyone who should have assistance about this issue.

    A few things i have generally told people today is that when evaluating a good internet electronics retail outlet, there are a few aspects that you have to factor in. First and foremost, you would like to make sure to find a reputable plus reliable shop that has received great testimonials and ratings from other shoppers and business world analysts. This will ensure that you are getting along with a well-known store to provide good service and support to the patrons. Thank you for sharing your ideas on this blog site.
