Unknown Disease: NCDC urges Nigerians to remain calm

The Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) has asked Nigerians to remain calm as they have begun investigations into the recent outbreak of a “strange disease” that has led to the death of about 62 people in Kogi.

A statement from NCDC yesterday said the organization’s Event Based Surveillance (EBS) system detected the news of a strange illness in Kogi State on Wednesday after a report of an outbreak in Kwara State a week before.

The statement said preliminary findings from the states showed that some cases presented with symptoms that fit the case definition of Lassa fever but was not the case after a laboratory test was conducted.
