The latest news jamming the headlines is the possible return of the Ebola virus. Therefore, it is highly imperative that we continue to make sure that our workplaces are still safe. In fact, safety measures should be intensified!
According to the Daily Sun News, PALPABLE fear has gripped workers and patients of the University of Calabar Teaching Hospital (UCTH) in Calabar, Cross River State over a suspected case of the Ebola Virus Disease (EVD).
The scare was induced by the death of a patient, who was brought in from nearby Akpabuyo community in Akpabuyo Local Government Area of the state for treatment on Tuesday evening, but reportedly died at about 2 a.m. yesterday, of symptoms related to the deadly virus.
The patient, whose identity could not be ascertained as at press time, was said to have vomited so much blood and bled from other sensitive parts of his body.
A source was quoted saying “A patient was brought in on Tuesday, vomiting, stooling and bleeding from the nose and mouth. He had high temperature. It was suspected that he had the hemorrhagic fever, but it has not been confirmed. He died at about 2 a.m. yesterday and his body has been quarantined while the ward was shut down.”
We do not pray for a return of the virus but for the main time, stay safe live safe!
