52 Cases Of Measles: Purported Report Is Not Recent – KGSG

Kogi State Government has described the report of 52 cases of measles outbreak in the State as erroneous.

This follows a statement from the Kogi State Commissioner for Health, Dr. Zakari Usman, addressing newsmen in Lokoja, Kogi State.

Adding that the report was a cumulative record of cases ever reported within the period of nine months, January to September.

“Adding that there is no active case of measles in the State”.

“You will recall that in the last 2 days some section of electronic media have erroneously reported outbreak of measles in the state, therefore it is important for us as a ministry to put the record straight as there Is no such outbreak currently ongoing in the state”

“The misinformation must have arisen from measles sensitization program held last week by the state Primary Health Care development Agency during which the agency gave the statistics of measles cases reported in the state from January to date.

“I therefore implore the public to disregard the report of purported outbreak of measles affecting 52 persons in the state by some electronic and print media.

“We will continue to collaborate and interface with the media in our usual way of informing the public officers our health programs as well as giving out the right information as regards disease outbreaks in the state.”, the statement ended.
