Read according to the guy below…

Few minutes ago, While drinking water before I left a garden somewhere in Garki Abuja‎ where I just had lunch.

I saw 3 young men holding a huge live rat they just caught in the garden.

Out of curiosity, I asked them if they were aware of Lassa fever and to my greatest surprise they knew nothing of such.

From a distance, I watched them slaughter the rat, smoke it and proceeded into the kitchen where the food I ate came from.

This is a clear evidence that the publicity and enlightenment campaign given to the disease is below sufficient.

I’m starting to believe what a caller on radio said some days back; that unlike Ebola, the poor are more vulnerable to Lassa fever hence the government won’t give it adequate attention.‎

Meanwhile, I just had lunch in this garden, and starting to get worried if I may have contacted the disease, and I’m picking up my daughter from school in another 2 hours.

Please guys can one get tested for Lassa fever like you get tested for HIV???
