The Management of the University of Benin Teaching Hospital (UBTH) said in Benin on Monday that none of its medical personnel recently quarantined over Lassa Fever tested positive to the virus.

The Chief Medical Director (CMD) of the hospital, Prof Michael Ibadin, disclosed this during an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN).

NAN reports that the doctors and nurses were quarantined in April, after rendering medical services to a patient who died of Lassa Fever at the hospital.
