In Nigeria, 15 people died of an unknown disease




Epidemiologists have already visited the families of the victims and collected all the samples necessary for the study.





In southern Nigeria in Delta State, at least 15 people have died of an unknown disease. This was reported yesterday by the local edition of Vanguard.

It is noted that among the deceased are young people aged 18 to 25 years. The state authorities have assured the population that everything possible will be done to limit the spread of the disease.

“The Delta State Government has received information about the allegedly mysterious deaths in the communities of Ute Okpu and Idumea. Governor Ifeanyi Okova instructed the State Ministry of Health to immediately investigate these deaths, determine their cause or causes, and take measures to contain (the disease),” on Mordi Ononye State Health.

Epidemiologists have already visited the families of the victims and the hospital and collected the samples necessary for the study. They suspect that hemorrhagic fever could be one of the causes of death.

Hemorrhagic fever is a viral disease characterized by fever, hemorrhagic syndrome (hemorrhage, bleeding). This type of infection includes dengue fever, Ebola, and Lassa fever.

We will remind, in February of this year, an outbreak of an unknown disease in the Nigerian state of Benue was also reported. Then 104 people became infected and 15 died. Local doctors stressed that this is not a coronavirus, but “something new.”
