Nyaho fever case not yet proven to be Ebola – Health Ministry

The Ministry of Health says the Noguchi Memorial Research Centre has not confirmed the suspected fever case recorded at the Nyaho Clinic yet.

It says it has put in place every precautionary measure at that clinic, including additional support of Public Health staff from the Ministry, “to quarantine patient and clinical staff [and] supply of protective gowns for staff of that hospital.”

The Ministry says it has also directed that the case should remain at that clinic and re-treated until otherwise, while “we wait for the laboratory result from the Noguchi Memorial Research Centre.”

A statement signed by the Ministry’s Public Relations Officer, Tony Goodman said: “We expect the general public to remain calm as we wait for the result from the blood sample taken for test.”

“We will like to assure the general public that we have everything under control,” it added.
