Oyo NMA Loses Two Doctors to Lassa Fever Within 72 hours

The Nigerian Medical Association, NMA, Oyo state branch, has sadly announced the loss of two of its members to Lassa fever within 72 hours.

Dr. Ayotunde Fasunla, NMA Chairman in Oyo, made this known in a statement today in Ibadan.

He said, “The NMA announces, with deepest regret and sorrow, the demise of two of our members from Lassa fever.

“The tragic deaths occurred within a space of 72 hours. It is indeed a sad week, and our eyes are still soaked in tears.”

Dr. Fasunla expressed shock at the onslaught of the Lassa Fever outbreak at a time COVID-19 had done its worst.

NMA therefore urged its members to treat all febrile illnesses with a high index of suspicion.

“Furthermore, we are worried about other health workers who have had contact with the diseased unknowingly. We have advised them to quarantine and report if they develop any symptoms of viral hemorrhagic fever,” Dr. Fasunla added.
