Lassa fever kills three in Ekiti

Three persons have been confirmed dead in a fresh case of Lassa fever in Ekiti.

The Commissioner for health, Dr Rotimi Ojo, made the disclosure in a statement in Ado-Ekiti.

He said that five out of the eight new suspected cases in the state tested negative while one was uncertain, with the last pending.

Ojo added that the patient that tested positive and two others had passed away.

The Commissioner however, insisted that there was still no cause for alarm in the state as the government was taking proactive steps in its surveillance activities.
