Lassa Fever Kills Abia Doctor


Ndukwu Chizaram, a doctor at the Federal Medical Centre (FMC) Umuahia, Abia state, has reportedly died of Lassa fever.

Innocent Orji, president of the association of resident doctors (ARD) in the state, said Chizaram took ill and was diagnosed with the disease after attending to an 11-month old baby who later died.

The baby was, however, not confirmed to have been infected with Lassa fever before his death.

Chizaram was said to have been taken to a private ward in the hospital after she took ill, and later transferred to Irrua Specialist Teaching Hospital, Edo, where she passed away.

The deceased reportedly joined the paediatrics department “barely a month” to her demise.
