Three people have been confirmed dead at the Saint Louis Hospital Specialist Hospital in Zonkwa, Zangon Kataf Local Government Area of Kaduna State, following the outbreak of Lassa fever in the area.

The state Commissioner for Health, Professor Jonathan Nok, who confirmed the incident to newsmen on Monday, identified the victims as a medical doctor, a nurse and a pregnant woman.

He said that the doctor and nurse showed signs of Lassa fever shortly after operating a pregnant woman who was brought in from another hospital in Kafanchan, and died few days after they tested positive to the deadly disease.          

The commissioner said the affected hospitals have been put under isolation with the intention of tracing the primary and secondary contacts with the deceased.

He urged residents not to panic as government is on top of the situation, while he advises them to maintain personal hygiene around their homes.
