Suspected Victims Of The Deadly Ebola Virus In Ogun State Isolated
The Ogun state commissioner for health, Olaokun Soyinka while speaking with journalists yesterday in Abeokuta asked residents to ignore the media reports that there’s an Ebola outbreak in the State. Mr Yinka says it is true that two Ogun State residents who work in Lagos had a close contact with Late Liberian man, Patrick Sawyer, but they have been isolated and are currently been monitored to know if they carry the virus or not.
He says there’s no reason to panic and all health workers in the local government and state levels have undergone training on how to handle Ebola cases.
He pleaded with the citizens to be careful and always wash their hands after the day’s activities and warned them against eating bats, antelopes and monkeys that are veritable carriers of the Ebola virus.
