Ogun State First Lassa Fever Patient Dies


After receiving treatment for nine days at the isolation unit of the Olabisi Onabanjo University Teaching Hospital, which was specifically equipped, staffed and funded by the state government to manage confirmed cases of Lassa fever, the first victim of Lassa Fever in Ogun State has died.

The Ogun State Commissioner of Health, Babatunde Ipaye, disclosed this at a press conference in Abeokuta that the government did its best to save the 28-year old lady, who died yesterday.

“The patient received a nine-day course of Ribavirin, potent antibiotics, appropriate blood transfusions and necessary psychosocial support. We were only waiting to celebrate the completion of medication today and take a blood sample to confirm cure when unexpected complication set in yesterday, Saturday the 13th February, 2016,” the commissioner stated.

The commissioner said they have already contacted the deceased family for approval to bury the victim based on WHO protocol.
