How Osun Checked Spread of Lassa Fever – Commissioner

The Osun State Commissioner for Health, Dr. Rafiu Isamotu, has said that the state government was able to check the spread of the Lassa Fever Disease by embarking on massive surveillance, intensive enlightenment campaign and rapid response initiatives, among others.

The Commissioner, in a meeting with journalists in Lagos, said that initiatives, such as the School Feeding Programme, Save One Million Lives Initiative, Mama Kit, distribution of safety mosquito nets and empowerment of surveillance of Officers, helped to keep the disease in check.
“For instance, when we had a case of someone who died of the disease, we traced the patient to Ore, in Ondo State where he was being attended to before finding his way to Ile-Ife where he attended the Seventh Day Adventist Hospital on January 29 and was referred to OAU Teaching Hospital on January 30 before his death on the same day. The sample taken from his body confirmed that he had Lassa fever and we ensured that we traced all the 34 people who had contact with him in the two hospitals.”
Isamotu also disclosed that the government was able to protect the people from the Lassa fever scourge by holding regular health talks on television and radio, as well as encouraging people to live a healthy lifestyle.
“Our isolation centres were already prepared for emergencies and within our hospitals, we had designated some wards as isolation centres. We also had the Professional Protective Equipment. Governor Aregbesola has recently released the funds for the purchase of more PPE aside those supplied by the Federal Government,” he said.
