Nigeria Launches Nationwide Campaign Against Lassa Fever

Nigerian Minister of Environment Mohammad Abubakar urged Nigerians to protect their homes from rats and other rodents because they are the vectors through which the disease can be easily spread, especially where sanitation is poor.


The minister said the ministry will ensure that the country’s environment is kept clean, which is the most effective way to prevent the disease.

Lassa fever is an acute hemorrhagic disease caused by Lassa virus, which is transmitted to humans through contact with food or household items contaminated by rodent feces.
