Health Advisory for Monkeypox Disease

 

While it is unfortunate that a suspected viral disease, characterized by fever, skin eruptions and body pains, is afflicting people in some parts of Bayelsa State, in southern Nigeria, The Wellbeing Foundation Africa (WBFA) continues to urge everyone to maintain healthy and hygienic habits, and to cooperate with healthcare workers, including members of the health protection agencies, such as the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC), the Federal Ministry of Health (FMoH), the Bayelsa State Ministry of Health, and other State Ministries of Health, in order to bring an end to this outbreak, which seems to be Monkeypox Disease.
