Daily Trust - - NEWS - From Us­man A. Bello, Lokoja

The Kogi State govern­ment said at the weekend that it has placed its health work­ers on alert in view of the Ebola dis­ease which is rav­aging in some African coun­tries.

In a state­ment by the state Com­mis­sioner for Health, Idris Omede, the state govern­ment urged health work­ers to be on alert and take all pre­cau­tion­ary mea­sures when at­tend­ing to sus­pected or con­firmed cases.

He also urged them to en­sure that any sus­pected case is re­ported to ei­ther the lo­cal govern­ment au­thor­i­ties or state govern­ment.

Omede said the dis­ease has no cure yet, but that the state can main­tain, aid and bal­ance vic­tims of the dis­ease.

He stressed the need for mem­bers of the pub­lic to keep them­selves and en­vi­ron­ments clean at all times.
