NCDC, SAYS OVER 4,000 CONFIRMED CASE’S OF LASSA FEVER, 142 DEATHS RECORDED IN 27 STATES ACROSS 123 LGAS                                                                                                                           28-03-24

By Sadiq Aminu                                                        The Nigeria Centre for Disease Prevention and Control, NCDC, says over 4,000 confirmed cases of Lassa fever and 142 deaths have been recorded in 27 states across 123 Local Government Areas in the country.

The Director General of the NCDC, Dr. Jide Idris who stated this during a news briefing in Abuja, also disclosed that over 2,000 cases of meningitis and 202 deaths had been recorded in 22 states and added that Kano state constituted about 75 percent of diphtheria outbreak.

Dr. Idris advocated increased investments in public health initiatives and strengthened partnerships, as well as the need for the agency to collaborate with other sectors under the one health agenda, to implement innovative strategies for disease prevention and control.

He also called on the federal government to collaborate with states government to ensure that the citizens were protected because the crux of disease control was at the states and local government levels.

Dr. Idris said more funds would be required to address public health and that the roadmap to achieving the mandate of the agency, was to lead the preparedness, detection and response to public health emergencies.
