He said:

‘About seven cases of suspected Lassa fever were reported in Yobe. They were subjected to normal clinical appraisal and three of the seven were looking less of Lassa fever. We will let you know when the result of the second laboratory test is released. We have isolated the cases to prevent unnecessary contact. Our epidemic response team has also gone to the affected communities to carryout contact-tracing as well as enlighten the people on how to deal with the situation’.
