Taraba State government has confirmed the outbreak of Lassa fever, a deadly viral disease, in the state. Lassa fever is transmitted by infected rodents. The state Commissioner of Health, Innocent Vakkai in an interview with journalists over the weekend said;
"One person died and two others quarantined and their blood samples have already been taken to Irrua Specialists Hospital in Edo State for further confirmation."
Speaking on how the viral disease is contacted, Vakkai said
"People usually get infected with the Lassa Virus after exposure to infected rodents, while person to person transmission occurs through direct contact with the sick person." He said precautionary measures include putting food in rodent proof containers and wearing protections such as masks, gloves, gowns among others.

 For starters, there's an error in
your write up.
You said policemen came to
arrest Buhari! Those four men
weren't policemen, they were
military men. As for th last paragraph I would
say it is your own opinion. But it
could be true th bottom line is
simply this, in all you do live a
just life. Because even if Buhari
wanted to get back at Dasuki, and Dasuki was clean there would be
nothing Buhari can do. Really? Why do you speak like a
novice, if Buhari wanted to get
back to Dasuki and he was clean.
First off, there is no clean politician
in Africa, everybody can be probed
and made to look bad if they really want to bring him down, even
Buhari had received 300m cars
from Dasuki during this period, did
you notice how no one ever speak
about that? Well that's the
formular, ever hard anyone hustle obasanjo like this? Though there
are evidence of major corruption
during his term, when you get more
familiar with politics you will realize
how cold it is out here. This is all
about revenge and not an opinion Should we call this happening now
a revenge? Well, their wahala.
Dasuki must bring those money
taking. how true is this?
