Rest easy guys: @TundeFashola declares Lagos #Ebola FREE

by Isi Esene

Governor Babatunde Fashola has declared Lagos State Ebola free.

The governor on Friday said the last individual under surveillance has been declared free of the deadly Ebola Virus Disease.

Fashola said this today at the Secretariat Central Mosque, Alausa, where he observed Jumat Prayers.

The governor said the development meant that the state was now Ebola free and that it was safe enough for schools to resume on September 22.

He said, “The last time when we discussed the issue, I told you that about 19 people were still under observation over the Ebola Virus Disease. They were there not because they had the disease but because they were showing suspected symptoms.

“But I am glad to report to you that the last person under surveilance was cleared this morning. He tested negative and that means there is no more Ebola in Lagos.

“Now that the disease has been successfully contained, schools can resume for normal academic session.”

Fashola, however, warned that the good news does not mean the disease has been completely eradicated. According to him, the possibility of cross-border transmission from high risk countries still abound.

He, however, said the state government was implementing strict measures to ensure the disease was confined to history.

The governor urged residents to be vigilant and to take precautions that would ensure their safety from the disease.
