The Lagos State Ministry of Information and Strategy has urged residents of the state to avert Lassa fever and other diseases by obeying the state’s sanitation laws.
Mr Oluwatoyin Adeni-Awosika, the ministry’s Director, Public Enlightenment and Community Relations, gave the advice in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Tuesday, in Lagos.
“This is Lassa fever, don’t think it is gone because it is an environmental sanitation matter.
“Wash your hands, keep clean environments. Rats find it very difficult to live in clean areas when there are no rags, there are no loose foods thrown away, there are no refuse bins overfilled, there is no blocked drainage (system).
