EBOLA: 5 New Suspected Cases Confirmed In Lagos State

Lagos State Health Commissioner, Jide Idris, has disclosed that five new Ebola cases have been suspected in the state at the Yaba Isolation Centre.

The state Commissioner for health made this known today while addressing journalists.

"We have recorded eight suspected cases, five of which were brought in yesterday," the commissioner announced. "We have 12 confirmed cases on the whole. Five have died and five have been discharged," he said.

Idris encouraged the public to be on guard and follow instructions from government health officials.

"This is a call for vigilance as human transmission is only achieved by physical contact with a person who is acutely and gravely ill from Ebola virus through body fluids such as blood, urine, stool, saliva, breast milk, semen and vomitus," said the health commissioner.
