A Facebook user with the name, Daniel Igoche, has raised an alarm after meeting a little girl with the symptom of the dreaded Monkey pox virus in Kaduna state.
So far, a total of twelves persons have been reportedly quarantined in Bayelsa state after the first case of suspected monkeypox infection was reported some days back. The virus later spread to the neighbouring state of Rivers.
Nigerians are required to always wash their hands, avoid monkeys, bush meats, and dead animals as well as be on the lookout for symptoms which often manifests as various stages of rash and an intense weakness of the body, severe pains, among other things.
Samples from suspected victims in Bayelsa and Rivers have been sent to the World Health Organisation, WHO, laboratory in Dakar, Senegal for confirmation.
