    Lassa is back


    Several suspected cases of Lassa haemorrhagic fever have been detected in recent days.

    ?Our teams are hard at work to protect the population," said Simon-Pierre Assane, the head of epidemiological surveillance at the Ministry of Health.


    No Lassa with us; phew!


    One less concern for the health authorities. There is no case of Lassa fever in Togo.

    In recent days, worrying information suggested the reappearance of this virus.

    But the samples taken turned out to be negative.

    "The laboratory tests are negative," Moustapha Mijiyawa, the Minister of Health confirmed Thursday.
    "Safety and security don't just happen, they are the result of collective consensus and public investment. We owe our children, the most vulnerable citizens in our society, a life free of violence and fear."
