      Nigerians Still At Risk Of Ebola, Says Minister

      Friday, 12 September 2014 22:35
      Written by Chukwuma Muanya, Debo Oladimeji and Kenechukwu Ezeonyejiaku

      IT is not yet Uhuru in the fight to contain the dreaded Ebola Virus Disease (EVD) in Nigeria — the danger is still here and Nigerians are still at risk of contracting the virus.

      Minister of Health, Prof. Onyebuchi Chukwu, gave the warning yesterday at a Requiem Mass organised for the late Dr. Ameyo Stella Adadevoh, the lady who gave her life to save the country from EVD, at Holy Cross Cathedral, Lagos.

      “The danger of Ebola is still there. So far as there is still one person with the disease, all of us are still at risk. We cannot afford to let down our guards. As far as there is a case in Liberia, Guinea, Sierra Leone or anywhere in the world, we are all at risk. We can play our individual roles and if we work together as global community, we can win this battle.

      “The South African woman detained at the Murtala Mohammed Airport, Lagos, and is presently still under quarantine at EVD facility in Lagos has tested negative for the disease. She is still being investigated for other diseases but for Ebola, laboratory result is negative,” Chukwu said.
      ...
      He faulted Nigerians and some media houses that are creating panic in the country over the reopening of schools. Chukwu dismissed media reports that the World Health Organisation (WHO) is against the reopening of schools on September 22, 2014, over fears of Ebola outbreak.
      ...
      “How do we honour the demise of Adadevoh? Certainly we need to work together. The WHO Representative called me this morning over media reports that the apex health body is kicking against the reopening of schools in Nigeria.

      “Why we kept the schools closed was to prepare the teachers working with the rest of the states. We shall soon get the disease out of the country. We have strengthened what we are doing at our border posts,” Chukwu added.

            WHO: EBOLA RESPONSE ROADMAP UPDATE
            22 September 2014

            Following the roadmap structure country reports fall into two categories: those with widespread and intense transmission (Guinea, Liberia, and Sierra Leone); and those with an initial case or cases, or with localized transmission (Nigeria, Senegal). An overview of the situation in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, where a separate, unrelated outbreak of Ebola virus disease (EVD) is occurring, is also provided (see Annex 1).

            1. COUNTRIES WITH WIDESPREAD AND INTENSE TRANSMISSION

            5843 (probable, confirmed and suspected; see Annex 2) cases and 2803 deaths have been reported in the current outbreak of EVD as at 20 September 2014 by the Ministry of Health of Guinea, as at 17 September 2014 by the Ministry of Health of Liberia, and as at 19 September 2014 by the Ministry of Health of Sierra Leone (table 1).
            ...
            2. COUNTRIES WITH AN INITIAL CASE OR CASES, OR WITH LOCALIZED TRANSMISSION

            Two countries, Nigeria and Senegal, have now reported a case or cases imported from a country with widespread and intense transmission. In Nigeria, there have been 20 cases and eight deaths. In Senegal, there has been one case, but as yet there have been no deaths or further suspected cases attributable to Ebola (table 2).

            Contact tracing and follow-up is ongoing. In Nigeria, 696 contacts have now completed 21-day follow-up (348 contacts in Lagos, 348 contacts in Port Harcourt). Of the three contacts who are still being monitored in Lagos, all were seen on 20 September. Of the 175 contacts who are still being monitored in Port Harcourt, 165 (94%) were seen on 20 September.
