Or response from United States Yellow Fever (November 24, 2018) – Nigeria


The Centers for Disease Control in Nigeria reveals the yellow fever in the United States.

As a result of a report on the origin of strangers fever, Edo was initiated by the public health healthcare team in the four local Government Governments of the State Government. On November 21, 2018, nine cases were positive for a yellow fever. We are expecting feedback from the WHO Laboratory of Reference.

Either the State Epidemiology Group is in the Nigerian Center for Disease Control (NCDC), the National Primary Health Care Development Agency (NPHCDA) and the World Health Organization (WHO), in the case of confirmed cases, for a detailed investigation and response.

The NCDC has responded rapidly to the search for cases where the state is in a position to search, risk communications and case management. To start a reactive vaccination campaign in front of the case-studies of the local administration, there is a continuous plan.

The fever feeds the virus through a broken fat. It is a vaccine for a totally preventative disease and a single shot offers immunity throughout life. Vaccine against the sun The routine-immunization program in Nigeria's primary health care centers includes all children under one year old.

Together with the vaccine, the public recommends that the environment be clean and free of water, the proliferation of mosquitoes and the treatment of insecticides, mosquitoes, windows and doors to prevent mosquito bites.

In September 2017, Nigeria has assumed fever in all states of the country. On November 11, 140 cases were confirmed in the Nigeria laboratory. The Emergency Operations Center has been established a multi-organ organ agency in the NCDC for the coordination of the response.

Symptoms of yellow fever include: eyes, fever, headache and body fat. If you have these symptoms or if you notice someone in your community, contact your nearest health center.

This week, our sister agency NPHCDA marked a large, yellow ankle vaccine campaign in six states targeting 26 million children and adults (9 months and 44 years): Niger, Plateau, Borno, Sokoto, Kebbi and FCT. A dose of the intestinal septum vaccine provides complete protection against illness. We want to get all the Nigerians to get a vaccine and encourage them for their families, so that neighbors do the same.

The NCDC helps all Nigeria to relax so that they continue to work with the States and their partners to ensure the reduction of the stock market.
