No Case Of Ebola In LUTH

Rememer that viral rumour of Ebola in Lagos, it was all a lie. The management of the Lagos University Teaching Hospital, Idi-Araba, has said no one has died of Ebola Virus Disease in the tertiary institution.

Speaking at a media briefing on Monday, the Acting Chief Medical Director of the hospital, Prof. Chris Bode, said, “Our attention has been drawn to a malicious piece of information making the rounds on social media, which purported that two foreign nationals brought to LUTH on Sunday, April 12, 2015 died of EVD.

“This is to swiftly deny any such rumour and inform members of the public that no such event happened.” Bode said the hospital had combed its records at all points of entry in LUTH in the past two weeks and had no such incident to report.

“Our professionals at the emergency services, various lines of responders, laboratories and nurses all reported no such cases in our hospital,” the professor of medicine said.
