Two doctors infected with Lassa fever and receiving treatment at the Lagos University Teaching Hospital, Idi-Araba, have been discharged.

The Chief Medical Director, Prof. Chris Bode,  who disclosed this in Lagos on Wednesday, also confirmed that the first doctor to have had  contact with the index patient had been discharged  since Sunday.

He noted that all three patients had been certified to be free of the virus while 70  contacts had been removed from the surveillance list as none of them had showed symptoms of the disease after completing the 21-day observation period.

Bode said, “The three doctors have been discharged and quite a number of them under the watch list have been discharged. About 70 people under the watch have completed their surveillance period but there are 60 others who will shortly be completing their own watch period very soon. We will be issuing a compressive report on the development,”

Three doctors out of over 150 persons that had contact with a pregnant woman who died of Lassa fever at LUTH had tested positive for the infection last week.
