Kano Govt dismisses report of 292 Lassa fever cases

Kano State Government has faulted report by a section of the media which claims that the state has recorded 292 cases of Lassa Fever.

It is reported that the lassa fever is transmitted by rats.

“The cases currently are five, with three deaths and the remaining two are receiving treatment. They are also responding to medications.

“So the issue of 292 ‘cases’ is unintentionally erroneous.”

He explained that the 292 are only on Contact Tracing and not confirmed cases.

Anwar added that three stages had to be followed before a case of the fever is confirmed.

“I therefore repeat that the 292 are only on Contact Tracing.”

He assured that the state government was determined to ensure effective management of the disease.

People should be very vigilant and not panic, as the state is doing everything possible to tame the situation, he added.
