7 Lassa fever suspects on the run in Taraba as 14 people die of the fever


This is according to Dr Aisha Sani, the Chairperson, Lassa Fever Committee at the Federal Medical Centre, Jalingo. She said: “Seven persons had absconded. We are making frantic efforts to arrest and bring them back to the hospital before they infect others with the disease.

We have our internal securities here, but the truth is that we need more to secure the Lassa fever unit.” So far, Lassa fever has claimed 14 lives in the state from January to date. According to Aisha, of the 49 suspected cases of the disease reported in the hospital, 21 persons were treated and discharged.
