The Nigerian Medical Association (NMA) in Ondo state says its members are not scared of treating lassa fever patients in the state.
Rather, the association said it is working with relevant agencies to curtail the spread of the disease.
The state Chairman of NMA, Dr. Wale Oke disclosed this while fielding questions from journalists in Akure.
The NMA boss said, “We are committed to the fight against lassa fever in Ondo state. We are working with government and technical partners to curb the spread of the disease.
“Our members are not scared to attend to lassa patients. We are fully involved’.
While commending the state government for quick intervention, Oke said government can still do more to prevent the spread of the disease.
Ondo is one of the states worst hit by the latest outbreak of lassa fever.
The state has recorded 21 deaths and over 200 confirmed cases.
