Just In: Lassa Fever kills Three Doctors in Oyo




Three NMA members in Oyo have been pronounced dead after a contact with the deadly Lassa Fever disease.

NMA said: “The NMA announces, with deepest regret and sorrow, the demise of three of her members from Lassa fever. It is indeed a sad week, and our eyes are still soaked in tears.



“While we thought that COVID-19 had done its worst, we are now dealing with another onslaught of a Lassa fever outbreak.


“Furthermore, we are worried about other health workers who have had contact with the deceased unknowingly. We have advised them to quarantine and report if they develop any symptoms of viral hemorrhagic fever.”


The state government said resources had been deployed to tackle the outbreak.
