NIGERIA NOW BECOMES EBOLA EXPERTS


At least there is something finally good or to be proud of about Nigeria. We all heard and knew about the deadly Ebola disease which spread through west Africa and unfortunately was brought into the country.

As at now there are no Ebola patients under quarantine and surveillance in Nigeria. So what really happened? Was it the doctors, the Ebola teams? or Even Prayers that helped subdue this deadly outbreak in  the country.

The United States are still marvelled as how Nigeria did this or helped manage this outbreak and also Stunned by the entrance of the Ebola Virus Disease, EVD, into America, the United States’ Center for Disease Control and Prevention has despatched its personnel to study how Nigeria contained the killer disease.

A statement released by CDC Director Tom Frieden stated that Nigeria’s “extensive response to a single case of Ebola shows that control is possible with rapid, focused interventions.” In addition to visiting Nigeria, CDC officials will also visit Senegal to study its containment model.

“The best practices in Nigeria and Senegal suggest the U.S. should monitor all individuals who may have been exposed to Ebola and establish a dedicated management and response system,” Frieden said.

Should this be a good thing to celebrate about Nigeria ?

Also, Nigeria has accepted to train 15 health workers from three West African countries affected by the Ebola Virus Disease (EVD), Minister of health Prof. Onyebuchi Chukwu, said in a statement.

“Nigeria will offer specialised training to the health personnel from the three severely affected West African nations of Guinea, Sierra Leone and Liberia,’’ he said.
According to him, the trainees comprised nine field epidemiologists and six laboratory scientists selected from the affected countries.
The minister said the training, scheduled to take place in Nigeria, would last for three weeks.
