Lassa Fever has Returned | Check out the Latest Reports




In a sad turn of events, it looks like cases of the dreaded lassa fever have begun to increase in Nigeria. According to latest reports, at least three persons have died of lassa fever at the Aminu Kano Teaching Hospital (AKTH) in Kano.

The three victims, including two medical doctors, died a few hours after operating a pregnant patient, suspected to be a primary carrier at the teaching hospital, Premium Times report.

The state commissioner for health Aminu Tsanyawa confirmed to journalists that the recent deaths were due to a fresh outbreak of the virus. The disclosure is coming hours after at least 16 people were reported dead in a fresh outbreak in Ondo State.

The governor, Rotimi Akeredolu, and The Nigeria Centre For Disease Control, met on Tuesday to review the situation which blew open on the weekend, as medical personnel struggled to grapple with the challenge.

    Lassa-fever is here and corona-virus is loading.

    Yet we are getting constant updates and definition of the problem from the science and technology community, with our medics working hard to stop the problem even giving their lives.

    Now Imagine if our science and technology agencies/institutions started to behave like these rent-seeking Lawyers and Accountants?

    These rent-seeking bastards that stagnate our nation for personal gain and monopoly access to unregulated 3rd party fees. So that when real problems come we are handicapped in solving them or cant solve them at all.
