See The Stupid Rat That Is Causing Lassa Fever (Details)

The name of the rat that Possess and spread the virus that causes lassa fever is called multi-mammate rat (cos it has many tips like local dogs after delivery). While the botanical name is mastomys natalensis.

There is an upsurge of the disease everywhere. So people should all practice hand washing hygiene. Also all fruit lovers should wash them with warm water before refrigerating them to eat. Women should avoid testing of dry garri by chewing them in the market. All garri soakers should let go for now.

The problem is that most of our garri sellers in the market buy their garri from bush markets. These garri are often fried half dry and are subsequently dried on polythene sheets on the tarred roads or compounds in the villages. These rat dive in at will, to feed their hungry bellies and in the process defecate and urinate on the garri, which dry up with it. If used for Eba, the virus may die because of the hot water used. But if soaked, the virus is directly ushered in.

Please no one should joke with these precautions. Prevention is cheaper and better than cure!
