Imo State Health Commissioner, Dr. Angela Uwakwem, on Wednesday, confirmed that two residents of Owerri have died of Lassa fever.

She said they died of the virus after they were “referred out of” the Federal Medical Centre, Owerri.

 “We have seven suspected cases of Lassa fever. Two are confirmed.

“The Imo State Government is working hard to establish the point of first contact. The media should also help us to enlighten our people.

“People should stop unnecessary shaking of hands. People should also stop eating exposed foods. The virus is caused by rats, so people should be encouraged to make use of rat poison in their homes,” she said.
