ATTENTION ALL: STAY SAFE, CAUTIOUS AND SAY NO TO THE SPREAD OF EBOLA VIRUS
As you all already know, a deadly and incurable disease caused by Ebola virus is now on the increase in West Africa especially Nigeria.
Just yesterday, the minister of information Mr. Labaran Maku disclosed that a nurse that had direct contact with the late Liberian, Patrick Sawyer, escaped from surveillance in Lagos and arrived her home town in Enugu. The minister also said that on arrival, the nurse had direct contact with 20 persons who are all now quarantined.
Though sahara reporters published a report that distanced one nurse from the act, the truth is that a nurse under surveillance escaped and landed in Enugu. Both the federal government and the Enugu state government had confirmed that about 20 persons with the escaped nurse are now quarantined in Enugu.
How to prevent the spread of Ebola Virus
Fellow compatriots, as we all know that Enugu state is very close to Anambra especially Awka, we urge everybody to be extra careful and cautious.
Avoid overcrowded areas and always wash your hands with detergents especially after touching someone. Avoid hugging and eating of all kinds of bush meats and Suya. Also avoid touching any carcass (dead body).
Having sex or ‘Making Love’ with an individual that is yet to undergo medical and laboratory test should also be avoided. Note that safe sex is never a guarantee against the Ebola virus.
Moreover, if you see anyone with constant fever, cough, dizziness, fatigue, waist or muscular pains, bleeding of the nose, eye, mouth or ear, vomiting or any one with severe rashes or abnormality of the skin, kindly avoid physical contact with such a person and dial this special Ebola centre line 0800326524357 (Toll Free).
Today another nurse was declared dead and a doctor tested positive of the virus in Lagos according to a PREMIUM TIMES report.
On an encouraging note, AIT reports that the Ebola experimental drugs are expected in Nigeria today. Also, AIT further reports that President Goodluck Jonathan has ordered the immediate closure of all primary and secondary schools in the country till further notice as a measure to prevent more contact of the virus.
Another report says that the federal government is considering closing down all universities, polytechnics and colleges of education in the country in order to avoid more spread. However, the federal government is yet to confirm its alleged plan of shutting down tertiary institutions.
May God protect us all.
