10 dead in another yellow fever outbreak in Nigeria

Intro

At least 10 people were confirmed dead following an outbreak of yellow fever in Ningi Local Government Area of Bauchi State.

Some of the affected communities in the local government include Tipchi, Deru, Sabon Gari, Tudun Wada and Barawo and it was further learnt that two health workers are among the patients.

One of the affected health workers at Tipchi Primary Health Care Centre told Daily Trust; “As I am talking to you I am also affected by the disease. I am currently at home with high fever, I cannot go to work. My female colleague is also down with high fever.

“We reported the outbreak to the immediate past director of primary health care in the local government. Maybe the recent suspension of directors of primary healthcare in the state delayed government intervention.
