I woke up one morning and it seemed there were more reasons to be sad in an already complicated world.

Right on my brown colored sofa, I watched as our realities were about to become a lot different than we had imagined for the new year. Sadly by nothing else but by the news that aired on my TV screen; the news read "Outbreak of Lassa Fever in Nigeria yet again.


Why do I opine this?

Ever since the outbreak of Lassa fever in Nigeria, one question has bothered upon the hearts of every Nigerian. Should Lassa fever be something to watch out for? Can we overlook it or not?

Well, statistics shows that 100,000- 300,000 infections of Lassa fever occurs annually in Africa. Out of which, 5000 persons die from this disease. Narrowing this data down to Nigeria. An average of 77 persons have died from this disease.


What Causes Lassa fever?

Lassa Fever is a deadly disease caused by a Virus which is usually carried by the multi mammate RAT in its faeces, urine or secretion.  Lassa fever is one of the hemorrhagic fever viruses like Ebola virusMarburg virus, and others

People most often become infected by

1. Inhaling contaminated air

2.  Swallowing the virus in food or contaminated utensils.

3. Preparing and eating meat of wild or non-domesticated animals, called bush meat or wild meat

4. Interaction with open wounds.


Knowing fully well that Lassa fever is REAL and a life threatening disease, there's great need to take extra precaution everywhere and every time. 

To stay Lassa- free, it is imperative that you and I keep ourselves clean, as well keep our surroundings clean. Thus we strictly recommend you cover your food, keep your home and environment clean, do not patronize food vendors whose food are not well kept. And oh, before we forget ... Kindly stop buying bush meat from non-trusted sources.

And even when this is done, that's not all. 

Now that you've kept your home and surroundings clean; How do you protect yourself when you leave your protected home?
