  • 5 new cases of Lassa Fever confirmed in Ondo State
  • 5 people have been hospitalised in Ondo State for
    being infected with the dreaded Lassa Fever.
    Officials at the Ondo State Ministry of Health
    confirmed the development, saying five persons
    have so far been diagnosed with the disease in
    the state.
    Three weeks ago, there were reports that a
    student of Achievers University, Owo, was
    infected with the disease and hospitalised at the
    Federal Medical Centre in Owo, Ondo state. This
    led parents and students of the institution to
    demand that the management of the school take
    measures to ensure the safety of the students.
    This led to a three-weeks mid-semester break
    being declared.
    The Permanent Secretary of the state’s Ministry of
    Health, Taye Oni, told journalists in Akure that
    there were new cases of the virus in addition to
    the student of the Achievers University earlier
    diagnosed. He said two cases were recorded in
    Owo Local Government Area and two in Akoko
    North-West Local Government Area.
    “Government is doing its best to contain the
    recorded cases by isolating the patients to
    prevent further spread,” Mr. Oni said. “We also
    embarked on aggressive contact tracing,
    sensitisation of the people not just in Owo and
    Ose but across the state on preventing and
    precautionary measures.”
    In a statement on Wednesday, the Vice Chancellor
    of Achievers University, Tunji Ibiyemi, said the
    student who was infected with the disease did not
    get it from within the campus, but outside,
    Premium Times reports.
    He blamed inflammatory media reports for the
    anxiety that trailed the incident, saying the
    student had since been undergoing treatment and
    would soon be discharged from the hospital.
    “The Management of Achievers University, Owo
    takes the overall well-being of its staff and
    students seriously. Nothing is, therefore, spared
    to ensure this. Apart from the University health
    centre, which is empowered to cater for the
    health of students and staff promptly, the
    University has a memorandum of understanding
    with the Federal Medical Centre (FMC), Owo, to
    which staff and students are referred when the
    need arises,” the Mr. Ibiyemi explained.
    “For a fact, a student of the University reported at
    the University health centre for treatment.
    However, she was not responding to treatment,
    and as usual, had to be referred to the FMC,
    where she was diagnosed of having Lassa fever
    symptoms. She has since stabilised, and will be
    discharged anytime soon. Investigation carried
    out by the University revealed that the affected
    student must have contracted the disease from
    outside the university premises as none of her
    roommates and friends, who have been screened,
    developed symptoms of the ailment. So, what we
    have in the university is an isolated case of Lassa
    fever, not an outbreak as being rumoured.”
