Lassa fever kills doctor who treated seven-month-old baby of the disease
Tragedy struck Sunday night as the medical doctor who contracted Lasa fever while treating a seven-month-old victim baby has himself died of the disease. The baby had earlier passed on last Saturday just one day of being admitted. Our correspondent learnt that late Doctor Idowu Ahmed died in Irua Edo State where he was being treated.
Until his death, Dr Victor was a House Officer at the Federal Medical Centre Lokoja where he contracted the disease from a seven-month-old baby who died on Friday 19 Jan. The Kogi State Chairman of the Nigeria Medical Association Dr Godwin Tijani described the deceased as a man who was committed to his job.
A statement from Dr Tijani announcing the obituary of the late Medical Doctor wrote “the NMA Kogi State is sorry to announce the death of Dr Idowu Ahmed Victor who was a House officer at FMC Lokoja. He was infected with the Lassa Virus as confirmed at Irrua Specialist Hospital. May his soul rest in perfect peace. Amen”.
