Lassa Fever: Five die, 24 others hospitalised in Ondo

The Ondo government has confirmed 24 cases of Lassa fever and five deaths from the deadly disease in four Local Government Areas in the state.

The State Commissioner for Information and Orientation, Yemi Olowolabi who confirmed this to journalists, listed the Local Government Areas affected as Owo, Akoko South/West, Akure North and Akure South.

He, however, said the government had strengthened its medical apparatuses in all its specialist hospitals to contain the spread of the disease.

Olowolabi informed that the isolation centre at the Federal Medical centre in Owo had also been reinforced to take adequate care of patients as part of efforts to check the spread of the disease.

He revealed that government was embarking on sensitisation of the public on unhygienic habits that could aid the spread of Lassa fever in the state.
