49 Die As Adamawa Records 838 Cases

The Adamawa Government said it has recorded no fewer than 838 cases of measles and 49 deaths in the state.

Dr James Jacob, Director, Disease Control and Immunisation, disclosed this to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Yola on Tuesday.

He said, so far no fewer than 13,084 children were vaccinated and the cases of the disease have now reduced.

According to him, the success recorded so far was as a result of political will by the top government officials in the state.
He said that there was no new case as of last week but active search cases were still ongoing.

Jacob called on parents and community leaders to ensure that all eligible children were vaccinated, not only for measles but to have hard immunity.

“Why we are saying this is because, if the targeted children in communities are properly vaccinated, the community will have what is called hard immunity.

“This will make it difficult for any outbreak in those communities,” he stated.
