Via Vanguard: Ebola: Two fresh cases confirmed in Lagos.
The federal goverment,Friday, has said that two new cases of Ebola infection have been confirmed in Lagos.
This brings to seven new cases of Ebola in Lagos and a second death from the virus.
Also, the federal government warned against bathing with salt water being circulated via SMSs and the social media as a cure for Ebola, saying it will prosecute individuals who spread such false information.
Vanguard gathered that 139 people are under surveillance in Africa’s most populous country as panic over the spread of the diseases heightens.
I saw a lot of tweets last night about salt-water bathing (preferably before 6:00 a.m.!) as a supposed preventive. Another example of high technology promoting quackery.
