The Nigerian Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) has released an advisory that highlights the control of Yellow Fever via Twitter.
The advisory stated that effective control of mosquitoes would reduce the risk of Yellow Fever infection.
“Ensure you get rid of stagnant water; keep your environments clean; keep your water containers covered properly; wear protective clothing to prevent mosquito bites,” the tweet reads.
Yellow Fever is spread to humans from bites of mosquitoes infected with the virus. The fever is not spread by casual contact between humans.
The NCDC has of late been focused on the global pandemic of COVID-19 but also has waged a battle against Lassa fever, rubella, Yellow Fever, measles, monkeypox, meningitis, Ebola and cholera.
The advisory was released to help citizens prevent the disease and identify symptoms. Those with symptoms are asked to report to the nearest health centre or call 0800-970000-10.
