The Lagos State Government on Thursday said the state was still under threat of trans-border transmission of Ebola Virus Disease from the virus ravaged neighboring countries.
State Commissioner for Health, Dr. Jidew Idris, made the assertion in Ikeja, Lagos, while receiving some Ebola virus preventive materials donated by Neimeith Pharmaceutical Plc to the state government.
He said though the last case under observation would be discharged later on Thursday, the state had yet to be free from the threats of EVD in spite of its successful containment.

According to him, Lagos State has been very lucky and proactive in the containment of the disease.
“So far, for over a week, we have not recorded any new case. We have followed up on all the contacts. In fact, the last contact should be delisted today, all things going on well.
“But, as long as we still have the situation in Liberia, Sierria-Leone and Guinea, we are not out of the woods yet because there is still the possibility and every potential that the virus could be re-introduced here,” Idris said.
The commissioner said the Federal Government had been proactive too in manning all the nation’s borders as part of the precautionary measures against the spread of the virus.
“But, we should not rest on our oars, and that is why we are trying to sensitize the public on the virus.
“We are to continue with every major strategy we started with. And, we hope we don’t record any new case,”  Idris said.
The commissioner said the state government would continue to train health workers to continue to respond and take steps to keep the environment safe.
