Chairman, Medical Advisory Committee at Lagos University Teaching Hospital (LUTH), Olufemi Fasanmade has confirmed the discharge of one of the patients being treated for Lassa fever. Fasanmade while speaking to newsmen also confirmed that two others were responding to treatment and will also be allowed to go home this week, “We discharged one of them last Sunday and the remaining two will be discharged this week. They are all fine. They will be going home tomorrow. After that we won’t have any other patient, apart from those that are under surveillance. The two other infected patients have been responding to treatment and are likely to be discharged this week even as 60 persons under surveillance have been cleared from the list leaving 70 others,” he said.
He further assured that no emergency is likely to arise from it, as the virus occurs frequently. he said: “We are not likely to have any emergency because it’s a thing that occurs recurrently and it is sporadic and endemic, meaning that, it is something that occurs and will continue to occur mostly on a yearly basis. It is just for us to control it, curtail it and ensure that the outbreak has very minimal death. It is just like malaria that occurs yearly.”
