Lassa fever

 

Lassa fever or Lassa hemorrhagic fever (LHF) is an acute viral hemorrhagic fever caused by the Lassa Virus which was first described in 1969 in the town of Lassa, in Borno State, Nigeria.

The primary animal host of the Lassa virus is the Natal multimammate mouse (Mastomys natalensis).

After an incubation period of 6 – 21 days, an acute illness develops which includes fever, facial swelling, muscle fatigue, conjunctivitis and mucosal bleeding.

Clinically, Lassa fever infections are difficult to distinguish from other hemorrhagic fevers such as Ebola and even from some forms of malaria.

The best way to prevent it is to avoid all forms of direct contacts with rodents and ensure our stored food products are well covered/enclosed properly.

For more information on this rampaging disease, kindly call our professional doctors on 35123 at the rate of =N=50/minute (MTN users only) Mondays – Fridays, 9am – 5pm or 67777 at the rate of =N=30/minute (Airtel users only)
